Description

Okimono figurines are Japanese works of art that date back to the Edo period (1615-1868) but gained popularity in the Meiji period (1868-1912). During this period, American trading vessels began sailing to Japan from New England, where marine ivory scrimshaw carvings were well known.

That trading route came to greatly influence a demand for Japanese works of art such as netsuke – miniature sculptures made out of ivory that represent the culture’s habits and mythology.

This is a very fine swan with tordas eyes.

3” x .9” x 1.5” (to top of head)
