Subject:Help with this carving!
Posted By: Jal Wed, Feb 06, 2019 IP:

Hi from Barcelona city!!!,
Some months ago I bought this figure, and I would like an opinion on this statue carved on ivory and painted. I have been looking for a similar carved figure, but I don't found nothing. It seems Chinese, but I'm not sure. I would like to know the age of it?

Well it appears to be genuine ivory.
As to how old, judging by the carving style early 20th century.
I would say Japanese.
Any marks or signature on said item?

I have something similar although I don’t know the size of your piece. Mine is about 3” tall and the head slips out to reveal the inside slightly hollowed. I can’t offer much additional it’s unmarked, I’d agree with mark on his assessment.
