The Art and Orchid Gallery's antique ivory carving is the figure of the Taoist immortal, 'Ramsaikwa' (known as Lan Ts'an-ho in Chinese), wearing her mugwort leaves skirt and carrying her characteristic attribute of a basket of flowers.[200A, 191B, 33C] She represents a Taoist immortal, possibly the least well-documented but best known for her basket of flowers, a Taoist attribute.[86D, 73E] One story claims Ramsaikwa to have been a weird woman dressed in tattered clothing and le ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's hand carved ivory netsuke has two faces, happy and sad, on a spinning bar. This is a rare but not unreferenced piece. We found two others out of hundreds researched.[12A] The ivory is signed with incised, stained mark on bottom (see photo). The carving depicts a seated woman with a fan, long hair and incised kimono. The kimono motifs are rice grain and pine branch. There are pierced holes for the 'himo' (silk cord).[42B, 120C] A netsuke is a toggle held a ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery offers cha wan, or tea bowls, hand decorated by Japanese artists whose superb technical skills were combined with gracefulness of form and a fine mixture of compounded colors.[3A, 11B] Kyoto Satsuma was exported to the West between 1875 and 1920 to satisfy the high demand for this Japanese ceramic art work generated by the International Expositions of 1862, 1867, 1873 and 1876.[34C, 104D] Most Kyoto Satsuma ware was decorated with hand painted floral designs.

The Art and Orchid Gallery's hand carved bone netsuke, or toggle, shows its 19th Century age with worn surfaces, cracks and worn pierced holes. This netsuke is a standing figure of an old man, seemingly out of breath, carrying a sack and wearing an incised mugwort leaf cloak and a hat with combs or horns attached.[ILL A] One can see the trabeculae (photo) of the bone under the feet (where it was probably glued to a base as a cabinet ornament, or okimono, after its life as a netsuke.[Ref B] N ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's Japanese ivory seal, called an 'in', probably from the Meiji Period, depicts a Karo Shi-shi, or Chinese lion, standing on a platform, the bottom of which is a seal.[120A, 120B] It seems likely that the well known Japanese sagemono, the inro, was first used in the 7th Century as a seal case, as its name implies, and only later developed into a portable medicine case.[120A] Japanese seals are usually made of ivory or hard wood and bear the name of the per ...click for details
