19TH C. JAPANESE IVORY OKIMONO OF FOLK DANCERS
$1350.00

This interesting and finely carved Japanese ivory okimono is a mid-19th century product. It is 6” high, 2” wide and 1” thick. It depicts one adult and one youngster engaged in folk dancing. The man is wearing a traditional hat called “Kazaori Eboshi.” He has raised his two arms up and is holding drum mallets. The boy is holding a paper fan. The artist’s signature “Yoshiaki” is on the base. Aside from some old repairs and crack lines due to its age, this charming piece is in good condition.
