Unusual late Qing Dynasty (1890s to 1911) buffalo horn carving of a reclining one-horned chimera snarling with its mouth wide open. Does not photograph well. Wonderful carving with great face, mane, tail and powerful paws, in superb condition. Excellent quality amber colored translucent horn (see backlit photo), very beautiful finish. Wonderful object for scholar’s table. Length 1 11/16 inches.
