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.
