This vintage figurine (similar to a netsuke in style but without holes) is about 1 inch tall, 2 1/4 inches long and weighs 1.3 ounces with the stand. It is detailed and is in excellent condition. The crosshatching (aka Schreger lines) indicative of authentic ivory is not easily seen on this piece as it is completely textured. It does pass the hot pin test. One of the two protrusions on the feet has broken off into one of the holes in the stand. I'm not sure if this can be repaired or perhaps permanently affixed. It does stay on the stand with the 1 remaining peg but it isn't as secure as it would be with two. I have attempted to display this in the 5th picture. As with all of my ivory auctions, I guarantee them all to be authentic ivory so please bid with confidence. I have a number of other ivory pieces up at this time so please take a look at my other auctions. I will be happy to provide a combined shipping cost for multiple wins. I will wait until all of my ivory auctions end to send invoices and will automatically combine shipping.
