This is a finely carved Japanese ivory Okimono of an elder with a single horn mythical creature, 17/18th century. Very detailed carved for both facial features of the creature and the elder, and the back also carved in fine details. The flames carved on the legs of the creature and the single horn indicates the mythical creature and the elder were from a legend. (It looks like a figure from the Chinese Ming Dynasty.) Height: 2 7/8". Very good condition with no crack or restoration.
