19TH C. JAPANESE IVORY OKIMONO OF A FISHERMAN
$875.00

This very well carved Japanese ivory okimono is a mid-19th century product. It is 5 3/8″ high, 2″ wide and 1 1/2″ thick. It depicts a standing fisherman with a big smile because of his catch. The happy fisherman is wearing a straw apron and carries a small bag. His left hand holds a wood paddle and a string of three fish, his right hand holds a basket of sea weed. A large basket with fish and shell fish sits at his side. Aside from some old repairs and crack lines due to its age, it is in good condition.
