JAPANESE POLYCHROME IVORY OKIMONO OF A MERCHANT
$1000.00

This very well carved ivory okimono of a Chinese merchant is a late Meiji period product. It is 5 high, 2 wide and 1 thick at the thickest part. It depicts a Chinese merchant with his hands in his sleeves, resting them in front of him. The artist did a great job on his facial expression and dress which includes a typical Chinese old fashioned two piece robe and hat. His goatee and long pigtail make this merchant more interesting and realistic. The artist, Hozan, signed his name on the bottom. It is in excellent condition.
