This netsuke is 100% SOLID ELEPHANT IVORY and in EXCELLENT CONDITION. It was HAND CARVED, HAND SCRIMSHAWED and SIGNED in China by a gifted master craftsman. This netsuke was carved in China many years ago – a beautiful piece of art that will last you many lifetimes. This netsuke is UNIQUE and exhibits beautiful IVORY GRAIN – showcasing the colors nature has chosen to bestow upon it. The ivory has been highly polished and exquisitely detailed. The quality of the ivory, the quality of the carving and the quality of the scrimshaw work are all exceptional. This well carved netsuke portrays a potter who has obviously seen better days. His hat rests on his back. It is almost impossible not to feel sorry for him!  The artist has signed this netsuke in ink on the underside of this piece.  This is a substantial netsuke - weighing 50% more than the typical netsuke. It would make a fine and unusual addition to any collection of antique ivory netsukes. Dimensions: 1 1/2" x 1 1/4” Weight: .6 ounce
