Great quality and fine carving. You see a fire Dragon with pearl snuff bottle. It is hand carved bone, quality of bone gives it an ivory look, but it is much less expensive. This piece is about 2 1/8" tall. The quality is that of fine ivory, which puts it far above most bone carvings. It is a great piece at a really great price.

This outstanding piece of carving of Mammoth Ivory is not as old as the carver who is old and loosing his sight. So I am told by my contact who is loosing his few fine carvers.

Each time I contact my select carvers, I find choices are down and prices are up. Take advantage of this piece as when it is gone I do not expect to find others of this quality,at this pric ...click for details

A lot of hand work went into this very nice bone with inlaid horn snuff bottle. It is a crane with a carnelian top spoon. Nice design, good quality handwork. It is about 2" long. This quality of work is hard to come by in China today where the economy and pay to craftsmen has gone up, and quality has gone down on everything handmade. Good investment.

SOLD thank you. 

Compare the masterful carving on this mammoth ivory snuff bottle to what is now available, it stands far above the rest. It is from China, it is a top quality piece of mammoth ivory, not endangered and legal. It is 2 1/2" tall. Full refund is given if you can show that any of my items are not as listed genuine mammoth ivory and hand carving for example. This piece has wonderful details, the texture of the pear, the ornate spoon and the elegant style of the two birds with worm. A treasure.

I buy my Netsukes and wood carvings from the very best carvers in China. The economy there is changing, cheap labor is gone. Skilled craftsmen are old and no new ones will replace them. This piece is a superior carving, fine details, glass inset eyes. A mama rat and four babies cluster in this charming larger netsuke style fruitwood carving. It is about 1 3/4" tall. One piece of a very hard wood to carve. Carved in China in the Japanese style.
