Description: Netsuke, ivory. Japan, 19th cent.

A rather unusual, elongated composition made of several clams, including the abalone awabi and Venus clam hamaguri. In the last mentioned is a minogame, a little turtle with compact hairy tail, overgrown with algae due to its old age. The ivory was patinized with brown color, the himotoshi underneath.
LENGTH 5,9 CM
From an old German collection
