Japanese Fruitwood Carving of a Gentleman Smoking a Pipe
share on Facebook

This marvelous and very tactile Japanese fruitwood carving is of a gentleman smoking a pipe. The statue stands on a square hardwood carved base topped with red velvet. The detailing is crisp and the wood shows natural markings and wear on the back, but does not in any way detract from the piece.  The carving without the base measures 5 in 14.6 cm wide, 5 in 14.6 cm deep and 8 in 20.3 cm in height. The base measures approximately 7 in -17.8 cm square with a height of 1 in 4 cm.
