Subject:ivory box artist
Posted By: steve jackson Sun, Jul 14, 2019 IP: 2a00:23c7:610c:8000:

I have a round ivory box with a 3 rat design to the lid as shown. I guess it's chinese rather than japanese and would love to know the name of the artist and anything about him ... can anyone help ?

Box is Japanese IMO.
Dating to early 20th century based solely on limited pictures posted.

Japanese, Meiji period. I read the signature as 'Masaboku' (正牧).
