Price on Request
A Chinese ivory hu, or audience tablet, of tapering slightly curved form, with good dark aged patina.

From a Belgian private collection.

Due to its’ relatively small size, a dating of early Ming dynasty is likely since, as the Ming dynasty progressed these tablets became larger until, at the end of the dynasty they ceased to be used.
