Magnificent Signed Japanese Carved Ivory Tusk

We are offering here a magnificent Signed Japanese Carved Ivory Tusk. This one is an ivory tusk of unknown type, with twelve Japanese figures carved down the length. They look as though they are going to market, and are carrying vessels and others with items over the shoulder. The reverse has what looks like mountains in the distance with the rows of hills. The Tusk is 11 3/4" long with an inlaid cinnabar plaque with the artists initials or mark. The large end of the tusk has an inserted oval with a floral design, which is mounted with pegs. It may have originally had a stand, since there are a couple of rough spots at the bottom of the picture. An awesome piece of Oriental Ivory.
