A hand carved wooden frog with ivory eyes is perched atop a two part ivory column that opens from the bottom revealing itself to be a rolled document or scroll container. Decorated with colored scrimshawed dragonflies, butterflies, various insects, and frogs in and around a lily-pad pond. Artist signed, it is in excellent condition except for a chip on the bottom (please study photos carefully). A very unusual item, this container including frog measures 7 1/8" high. Japanese, circa late 19th century.
