Stunningly Carved Antique Japanese Faux Ivory Page Turner/letter Opener For Sale

Stunningly Carved Antique Japanese Faux Ivory Page Turner/letter Opener

For sale is this stunningly carvedantique Japanese Meiji faux ivory letter opener/page turner. Words can't describe how beautifully carved this letter opener is, the detail is fantastic. Please look at all the pictures as they do a better job than me! This measures 28cm long by just over 3cm wide.

It is invery goodcondition however it must be mentioned that I suspect the top part didn't always belong to the bottom part! I think sometime in its long history the top of the letter opener got broken or damaged and the owner (rightly so) didn't want to throw away such a beautiful piece so found a suitable top for it. I think they look stunning together and they are definitely both of the period so not sure it matters too much. There are a couple of very minor splits at the lower edge and another couple where the two pieces meet but nothing to compromise its stability. There is also a very small area of wear to the lower frontbut I think once this is cleanedit will become unnoticeable.

The faux ivory is a rich cream colour on the front and a more yellow cream colour to the back. The last two photos best show the true colour. I imagine a professional clean would make a difference to the overall look of the piece.

Please look at all the pictures as they form an important part of the description. I do my best to describe my items accurately and honestly, however please keep in mind that I am not an expert.

Thanks for looking, I have other silver items for sale and some more faux ivory.

UK buyers - happy to accept bank transfer, bank cheque or paypal.

Overseas buyers - Paypal only thanks.

I combine postage wherever possible and practical.

OOPS! Since listing this I've done some more research and this is more likely to be Chinese rather than Japanese. I found another similar example on the internet and it was described as being carved with Taoist immortals and it has the same pattern carved in the background. It is still the same period - 19th century.
