This is a rare ivory group of the Chinese story "Zhaojun Leaving the Pass" (Wiki reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wang_Zhaojun). 17th/18th century. The carving style belongs to Beijing school. You can tell the influence from 'Blanc de Chine' of the same period. It is seldom to find ivory pieces that can reach this level of similarity. A real masterpiece ! Height: 21cm without stand
