Fine okimono made up of three figures in ivory: a dad holding a basket full of persimmons with a rope and with a child on his shoulders, while the other is playing with a tambourine and attracting the attention of the younger one.
The group is rich in details and elements, from the tobacco box to the basket, to the bows that fasten the children's kimonos.
Signature engraved under the base: Toshigyoku.
In very good condition - the index finger of the right hand of the child being carried has been professionally restored, which can be seen with a magnifying glass.
