Shibiyama Ivory Page Turner with bugs


A simple and beautiful ivory page turner from Japan, with an inlaid decoration of four beetles at its end. Shibiyama is a Japanese family name now used to describe ivory inlaid with mother of pearl or hardstone. The bodies of the insects are a variety of attached gem stones. Each beetle's legs or antennae have been hand painted by singular brush strokes. It is quite an old piece, over 100 years old, but remains in great condition.
