Favourite Item
As part of our oriental collection we are delighted to offer this most unusual Japanese ivory and silver presentation spade , the turned ivory handle is carved with monkeys in high relief shibayama style , the silver spade end is finely chased with monkeys and is fixed to the handle with silver rivets , we assume the item to be a presentation piece for a retired worker and would have expected the silver shovel to have been engraved with a personal inscription ,if this was its intended use it is rather nice that it has been left uninscribed.

A really unusual Meiji period object .

The condition is great with only minor old stable age lines to the ivory handle .
