Product Description

A very nicely carved Japanese Ivory Okimono or statuette of a man and a boy with a stork or crane.

The statue is made of marine walrus (Odobenus rosmarus) ivory and shows the boy on the man’s shoulders, holding peaches that he has just picked off a tree. Next to them is stork or crane looking up, in the hope of food. The statue dates from the beginning of the 20th century. It is in very good condition, for the exception of the broken neck. This has been cause in part by stress in the ivory, because although the broken part is reattached, the natural twist in the ivory means it no longer fits properly. The okimono stands on a wooden base. The ivory is not signed.
