Fine ivory okimono depicting a young geisha hiding her smile with her hands. The gesture and the great expressiveness of the face not only express the young woman's embarrassment and naivety, but also reveal a reserve typical of Japanese tradition.
An object of great charm and with character and quality of sculpture that suggests a probable provenance from the Tokyo school.
Yukihiro 之博 signature.
On the whole it appears to be in very good condition, with minimal veining consistent with its age.
