Provenance

This hand carved ivory statue was given to my Mother, Lois L. McCall, by her aunt C.F. Johnson. Miss Johnson purchased it from Helen Ling in Singapore in the early 50's. It was given to my Mother around 1954 or 5. I inherited it on December 23, 2009, upon the death of my Mother.

Dear Robert,

You have Chinese carved statue of a monk with a flute. I cannot see specifics to give more details about the figure. Its made of elephant ivory and its made in republic period China say 1920 / 1930. Its well carved with a good expression. Be aware in selling ivory on the market if you would like to sell. Best way is using a professional auction house; they know how to deal with SITES issues and possible export to other countries.
