This is a large carved ivory handle depicting a European lady holding a fan, with the lower part of the handle carved with clambering mice and birds amongst blossom and foliage. The base of the handle has a section of plaited leather strips 1.5cm wide attached to it. I'm not sure what this was attached to originally, perhaps a parasol or perhaps a knife of some kind...

A very good quality antique Chinese carved ivory parasol handle complete with net lace covered shade. The handle consists of a well carved dragons head tapering to an ornately carved stick section depicting dragons, foliage, birds and butterflies which joins to the shade section and is held in place by a metal collar.

This is a lovely antique Meiji Japanese carved ivory netsuke depicting a porcelain painter playing with a cat. Finely carved and with great detail throughout, the carver has even gone to the trouble of writing the title of the book to the underside of it where it can't be seen. I love the detail put into these tiny pieces, they are miniature works of art. This netsuke is signed in an inset red cartouche to the underside and is in excellent condition...

This is a lovely antique silk and lace parasol with a carved ivory handle and finial depicting entwining grapes. I think the handle was most probably carved in Dieppe as the parasol was retailed by Cazal, Paris. The silver coloured collars are both stamped 27 Boulevardes Italiens Cazal, Paris within a shield shaped cartouche. The handle folds down with the collar being used to hold it up when open. The silk and lace to the shade are both splitting but the handle is in excellent undamaged con...
