Okimono - Ivory - Monkey with stick - Japan - Meiji period (1868-1912)
Good condition, see description - 5.5×1.7×3 cm


This monkey was certainly part of a group Okimono (see hole and traces of glue under the left foot).

The monkey was probably standing on his left foot and having his right foot laid on an element of the okimono.

He holds wwith his two hands the extremity of a stick that was broken just above the right hand.

This stick was probably supporting an accessory.. that disappeared with its upper part.

The carving is finely detailed, with a vivid expression on the monkey's facee, and nicely rendered fur.


End of 19th century - C.1890


9,1 gr




Good condition with expected wear chip to the end of the stick he is holding

To be accurate there is only one lack at the end of the stick

Please check pictures for global condition

Note on picture you can see that we use small piece of PATAFIX just under the feet to shoot the okimono on rigth way - not a default or others...
