As part of our oriental collection we are delighted to offer this large and impressive Japanese ivory page turner , the handle is formed as a superb quality one piece okimono of Gamma Sennin clutching toads while others are clambering across his body , one toad chasing a spider on the boulder above , a great okimono in itself but with the added benefit of a lacquered and finely detailed shibayama blade , decorated to both sides with birds and butterflies amidst foliage , lots of use of semi precious stones on each side including the imperial mon chrysanthemum at the base of each side.

The condition overall is lovely with no losses to the shibayama and only expected age related wear to the blade , we have noted a minor old repair on his toe(see last pic) but all present and really minimal on the scale of this great item.
