Subject:trying to identify more information on okimono and maker

I am an art conservator repairing an ivory okimono (definitely elephant) that was purchased in Japan between 1917 - 1922. The figure group is 10" height and among other interesting features includes "dutchman" repairs that I suspect were carried out by the artist. There is a seal on the underside that I am not sure what to make of and would love any assistance anyone could give.
