Antique Japanese Wooden Kobe Kobi Toy Man Eating Melon:
ANTIQUE JAPANESE WOODEN KOBE KOBI TOY MAN EATING MELON
I am listing a collection of Chinese antiques that have all come from the same house clearance. I do not normally sell Eastern / Oriental items so my knowledge is pretty limited. I will describe as well as I can but please read everything and study my photos all of which can be enlarged by clicking the image. I expect buyers to ask all questions prior to offerding. Thankyou.
On offer here is an antique large sized Japanese Kobi / Kobe automated wooden toy in the form of a man eating a melon. There is a box at the base that houses the mechanism. The box has small ox bone pegs to the corners and it has a handle to one side. When the handle is operated the man lifts the melon up to his mouth and his jaw opens and closes whilst his head nods.It is a charming item. It measures 4.8 x 3.9 inches wide x approx 7 inches high and it is in good condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. It is fully operational
