JAPANESE BONE AND TAGUA CARVING OF A MERCHANT
$275.00

This early 20th century Japanese carved bone and tagua statue is 6 high, 2 wide (the base is 2 5/8 wide) and 1 thick. It depicts a man who appears to be a merchant. His left hand carries a pouch; his right hand is raised up and holds an unknown subject. His body was carved from bone and his head was carved from tagua (vegetable ivory). Aside from a small repair on the collar, it is in good condition.
