Subject:Okimono Carver's Signature
Posted By: baton Tue, Dec 18, 2018 IP: 24.85.231.51

Can somebody identify who is the master of this okimono? How old is this carving and was it made in China or in Japan?

This carving is firstly very well made. It is made from ivory and not bone.
It is Japanese!
Sorry cannot read the inscription. But it will be the signature of the artist.
A very nice piece overall.
Hope this helps you out.

This carving is made from ivory. It is Japanese in origin. A very good carver, however I am unable to read the signature.
It would date probably to the early 20th century.
Hope this helps you out
