Very rare and very old huangyangmu (rosewood) pipe ornament of a man riding a guardian lion ; the only one that big with such a character I ever saw (see PP-D2D) ; promotion and protection symbol.
Wonderful and very smooth patina, beautiful colour, carving all around and under the base ; very good condition for its age (could be Ming), I guess the tail has been broken, long ago (see pix) ; otherwise, the price would be higher ! Very big size : 6c
