Boxwood Okimono of Carpenter
This is a remarkable boxwood and ivory okimono of a carpenter at work. The scene depicts the carpenter giving his tansu finishing touches with an ivory carving knife. This okimono is carved and incised meticulously with attention to every detail - all sides of the cabinet - its doors, drawers and hardware realistically carved. Signed SHUNKO on the base. Height: 5" Meiji Period, Japan
