Terrific Meiji Period Carved Ivory Turtles Cane or Parasol Handle

Presented is a remarkable Meiji period carved ivory handle. The handle is intricately carved completely in the round with a delightful little family of turtles climbing on top of one another. The detail in the carving is exceptional. The ivory has excellent cross-hatching on the underside. The handle has never been mounted onto anything. It was undoubtedly intended as a cane handle, or possibly a parasol handle. This could also be mounted onto a desk item such as a magnifying glass or a letter opener.

The base of the handle is etched as a signature as shown.

The condition is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, no splits, no breaks, and no repairs.

The handle is 1 5/8 inches wide and 4 1/4 inches long.
