Large panel of 7 Chinese literates - Shishifukujins

In a wooden frame blackened and carved of prunus flowers 7 Literates or shishifukujins in Japanese are very finely carved ivory, mother of pearl and bone where they engage in the arts . Very fine representation of this scene in a bucolic setting. A similar scene is also described for the 7 Japanese Gods (shishifukujins) amongst the bamboo forest.
A small ivory fan surrounded by a crane spreading its wings with an inscription is located at the bottom right of the panel: Fioraventi Chimenz Yokohama, probably signifying the coordinates of the customer ordering this piece in a Yokohama workshop. Meiji period late 19th century.
