LOTS MORE PHOTOS BELOW - Click to Enlarge

A fine and largeantique Meiji periodJapanese okimono figure,sectional carved from faux ivory, and dating to the late 19th century c.1890.

The okimono has an oval ox bonebase,and depicts a fisherman ? with a bamboo flute or Fue attached to one side of hiswaistband and a wooden box to the other side. The man is wearingsome formof hat or head covering and his robe is decorated with a foliate pattern.

The carving and detailing are fine- please see all photos and click to enlarge.

Condition is overall good with light marking commensurate with age,but there are a couple of points : The man should be holding a fishing rod, but this has been lost, and as with all sectional carved okimono of this age, the pegs are a little loose and could do with being restuck- please see all photos.

There are a couple of emptypeg holes on the figure where part of the rod ? should have been, and the figure would benefit from a light clean.

The okimonostands approx 9 5/8" or 24.5cm tall.

Overall, a fine antique Japanese okimono that displays beautifully.
