Antique Ivory Figural Netsuke
The detail of the turtle is great with his head extending beyond his shell. On the bottom of the turtle's shell there is a signature of the artist. I purchased this Netsuke from an old time antique dealer who had a wonderful collection of Netsuke's as well as many other categories.
The Netsuke is 2 ¼" tall X 1" wide X 1 ¼" (front to back). The condition of this piece is very good. There are some hairlines in the ivory, which is certainly very normal for a piece of this age. These hairlines are not cracks, but truly hairlines. Circa 1840-50's.
Under California Penal Code 653o it is unlawful for us to sell ivory pieces to residences of California.
