You are bidding on an antique carved ivory statue of a Geisha. We believe that this was made in China, before 1900. The statue is well-made, and the carving is very fine. The statue is 6 and 3/8 inches in height. Condition is EXCELLENT, especially for a piece of this vintage. T are some age-related stress-cracks on the bottom of the piece, which we have photographed. This piece was purchased approximately 55 years ago from a shop in London, and it has been kept in a cabinet, in a smoke-free environment since it was purchased. This piece has been authenticated by a major auction house as genuine. We will only ship within the United States, so please bid accordingly. Shipping is $20.00.
