Incredible Wakazashi Or Tanto Bone And Ivory Shibayama Inlaid Japanese Meiji Sword Master Carving

Unavailable
Fantastic Wakazashi or Tanto carved in highly polished bone and possibly some ivory elements. This is one of the nicest swords there is in this genre. Circa 1880 and a master carving job by Japanese Meiji artists. Look closely at the depth and detail of all the elements of this sword. Includes a dozen or so inlaid mother of pearl and abalone pieces. Pierced in spots and inlaid horn eyes. A few minor restorations and age lines missing one horn inlay. Overall very good condition and a highlight piece. 14" long
