Number 9 is quite stunning with colour and a wooden box that comes with it...

Hi Phillip,

originally there were two pieces in this thread, but as the other one is what is described here as an "NLO", The Modteam has moved it to that Forum.

The signature of this piece could be "Tomoyuki" ? 友 之 and kao ?
There is a late carver who worked in coloured ivory. He followed in the style of Takamura Koun.
A piece of him is mentioned in N. Davey nr. 506 : "An attractive group of the three Sake-Tasters". It was sold at Bonhams.
The style is quite similar to your piece in the use of colour and some patterns.

A piece that might be from the same carver was shared here : viewtopic.php?f=166960&t=6248164&p=28748&hilit=tomoyuki#p28748
