An ivory okimono carving of farmer sitting on a platform with a hoe, offering a squash in one hand and a basket by his side with more squash on the other side. The hoe is removable. Signed on underside with red lacquer inlaid plaque. Dates circa 1900. Dimensions:2 3/4" long x 2" deep x 2 1/4" high. Very good condition although one of the posts of the platform has been professionally restored/replaced so that it rests evenly. The post cannot be seen when on display and one would never know it had been replaced unless told, or examined closely under high magnification. When looking with the naked eye, it cannot be detected. The farmer may have held something in his other hand at one time. It appears that there may be a tiny chip on the farmers foot/shoe tucked under his pants/body. Again, not noticeable unless pointed out. Satisfaction guaranteed. Return privilege providing item returned in sent condition, within 3 days of having been received, and the way it was packed. Sales tax charged if sold in NY state unless valid NY sales tax number and signed form provided. Postage/insurance extra.
