See my other auctions for more great related historic & collectible items! EXQUISITELY HAND CARVED BONE JAPANESE LATE MEIJI PERIOD BIRDS (early 20th Century) - HOUSE WREN. Meiji-jidai, also known as the Meiji era, is a Japanese era which extended from October 23, 1868, to July 30, 1912. This period represents the first half of the Empire of Japan during which Japanese society moved from being an isolated feudal society to its modern form. Fundamental changes affected its social structure, internal politics, economy, military, and foreign relations. The period corresponded to the reign of Emperor Meiji after 1868, and lasted until his death in 1912. It was succeeded by the Taish period upon the accession of Emperor Taish to the throne. Two hand carved late Meiji period Japanese birds made during early 20th C. (1920's at latest) One still retains partial old Made in Japan paper import sticker.

Carved from old ox bone. One has some hand painted reddish color to it. Hand carved with the highest skill & detail. The feathers look so real.

Adorable house wren bird with characteristic tail pointing straight up in the air. Uncommon to find earlier carved birds like this made in the finer details & realism, as the later 20th C. Carvings lost so much of the details & skill. Also unusual to find this nice an early Japan carving that is NOT an ojime or netsuke!

Bird with straight up tail is about 1 1/4" (inches) long X 1 1/2" tall. No damage or flaws other than tiny minor ding to the wingtips of bird with straight up tail. I have other fine Asian antiques listed. Please see my other listings for more great related vintage & historical items.
