This is an ivory toggle showing two huans, a mythical Chinese animal. (It could also depict two lions..) The two "huan" are chasing each other. The carving is truly great: every line that should be there is there. This is an old toggle and as such is not in perfect condition. It seems to have a small nick in one paw, I believe. Price reflects this lacunae.
