Product Details

  • Originating from an extensive private collection we are delighted to offer this superb and large carved ivory antique figure of a fisherman with a two character signature mark to the base and dating from the Meiji period 1868 to 1912. The figure is carved standing on a rock work base with the waves below and supports a basket of fish in one hand with a young boy perched on his shoulder also holding a fish proudly in one hand. A daring sea bird steals a fish from the basket resting on the rocks below. The figure is very well carved with patterned detail carved to the clothing. The figure has a carved leaf mark to the base along with two character signature marks.
