A solid-sized private collection of small bone plastics is probably one of the most interesting active lots in the Decorative and Applied Arts section. Almost two hundred users are currently bidding for the collection.
Okimono, netsuke, and other examples of traditional carved miniatures were made in Japan and China in the 18th and 21st centuries. The height of the figures ranges from 0.5 to 8 cm. The materials used are very diverse: ivory and mammoth bone, sperm whale tooth, coral, amber, boxwood, and others. In total, the collection includes 163 figurines, many of which are signed by the author.  
According to the seller, the items are in good condition, without restoration or loss. They will not be sold individually. A serious buyer will be able to see the collection live in person in the Ukrainian capital. 
In just two days from the starting price of 100 hryvnias, the offer has already reached 100 thousand, with almost 50 bids for the lot. Meanwhile, there is still a whole week left until the end of the auction.
