4" Japanese Man Selling Fish - Celluloid, Vintage Mid-Century
This little guy was found at the same estate sale as the snuff bottle, elephant figurine and a few other items not listed. The items belonged to a man who was an Asian collector and traveled overseas from the 70's to the 90's to add to his collection. This is considered a "hard to find" piece with rickshaws and man carrying a bucket commonly offered.
Celluoid was marketed as an affordable and practical substitute for natural materials such as ivory, tortoiseshell, and horn. Many antique and vintage collectible figurines are made from celluloid.
