Very exceptional wooden dragon from approx. 1950 (possibly older)
Probably made of ironwood, pay unique attention to the beautiful details such as the eyes and the teeth.
The teeth are undamaged and probably made of bone (possibly ivory).
The eyes are made of glass, which makes them very lively.
The leaf is a loose part, but is also in perfect condition.
All these elements have meaning, like the tail underneath the dragon represents water and waves.
