Signed Carved Ivory Shibayama Inlay Elephant Netsuke Coral Mother of Pearl Jade

Presented is a wonderful carved ivory elephant netsuke with magnificent shibayama inlay decoration. The ivory is very well carved and exquisitely inlaid with coral, mother of pearl, and jade. There is a mother of pearl signature plaque on the underside of the elephant. The quality of the craftsmanship is excellent. This piece is really nicely made. It is probably about 50 years old, although it is difficult to give an exact age.

The elephant netsuke measures 7/8 inch wide, 1 5/8 inches long, and 1 1/8 inches tall.
