Expertly Detailed Ivory Figure of a Chinese Empress

This is an expertly carved and detailed Ivory figure of a Chinese Empress. With the exception of the face almost every square mm is carved in almost unbelievable detail. In over 25 years of collecting, I have not seen another example of such intricate carving. I acquired this piece in trade with one of my long time customers. He purchased the piece in Hong Kong while on a business trip. He was an importer of Asian goods. The Figure is 3.50 inches in height, 1.75 inches in depth and 2.1 inches wide .The Schreger lines (crosshatching) is clearly visible on the base of the piece.There is no visible damage or repair to the piece. I believe this piece to be Circa late 1880's to early 1920's. Please feel free to email any questions.
