This is a tremendous find, an antique carved ivory statue. This piece, we believe is Japanese in origin, and is has a hand crafted marble and metal base. It measures about 6 ¾ inches tall (the ivory piece measures about 4 ½ inches tall without the base) and it has a small opal gemstone in the center of its forehead. Very nice. This piece appears to be hand carved, and is in great condition.

T is some natural yellowing due to age and it will need cleaning as well (it looks like t is some residue on the piece as well). It looks like the base was crafted by the original owner and is not original to the piece.

This piece comes from the estate of Florian Edward Gabriel. He was the owner of an 1897 Victorian Mansion in Highland Park California and lived t since the 1960s. He was one of the lead designers at Stephen Crane and Associates who was one of the foremost architects of the 1950s Tiki movement which designed and managed Kon Tiki restaurants including the Luau in Beverly Hills CA. Florian was a designer, an artist, a collector, and went on trips as far reaching as New Guinea, Africa, Mexico, Hawaii, the Southwestern United States and other Polynesian territories. Many of these artifacts were acquired for the firm and his personal collection. Be on the lookout for more pieces from his estate. We are happy to combine shipping!
