As part of our oriental collection we are delighted to offer this fine quality Japanese ivory ball formed as a swarm of rats , the ball is slightly larger and heavier than the average and has a signature tablet formed as a wedge of cheese , the eyes are inlaid in black jet, a great 19th century Meiji period okimono !

The ball has nicely mellowed with the addition of expected stable age lines , as usual some of the jet eyes are missing but overall a great Meiji period rat ball !!
