ANTIQUE JAPAN JAPANESE BONE MARBLE FAUX PAS STATUE ANCIENT RARE Confucious



Since Asian items are not my specialty, I anxiously await the input of any Ebayer who may know something about this statue. I shall try my best to describe it.

This Japanese statue was bought at an estate recently of a well known world traveling businessman who picked this up on one of his trips to the Orient. The statue is that of a wise looking old man, perhaps Confucious, dressed in the traditional clothing of his time. There's also some Japanese writing (4 symbols) on the front of the fan? which he is holding which I have photographed (please click to see a closeup). There's also Japanese writing on the bottom of the stand which this image is mounted upon.

The statue I believe is anywhere between 70 to 150 years old.

WEIGHT: This statue is HEAVY! Leading me to believe that the material used is marble/stone or perhaps i v o r y or bone. It weighs WITH the stand (which weighs 160 grams) 900 grams!

HEIGHT: 12 inches.

CONDITION: The statue is cracked and has been glued back together (not so nicely may I add). The stand has seperated from the body of the statue.

This statue came together with another similar styled statue of a elegant Japanese lady, made by the same person/company since it has the same writing on the bottom of the stand. Please see my other auction for more details.
