View Similar ItemsView More
This late nineteenth century Japanese Meiji okimono depicts a small bird with incised feathers and blackened eyes. Okimono, a Japanese term meaning "ornament for display," were small carvings, typically ivory, that were larger than netsuke but had no specific purpose other than display. During the Meiji period, the finest okimono were made of carved ivory in the Tokyo School. Many were made specifically for export to the West.
