B11303 £22 inc UK Post. Offers welcome. A vintage carved bone, or faux ivory (we haven’t made our minds up but we’re erring on the side of bone) Three Wise Monkeys (in the form of Hear no Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil). The Monkeys come with a wooden stand but unfortunately are easily detached, hence the relatively low price asked. Other than this, they are structurally sound. For further info/photos, please contact us.

B11308 £16 inc UK Post. Offers Welcome. A small carved male figure in ceremonial dress, possibly made out of bone or ivory (we don’t think it is faux ivory due to the nature of the carving). The figure stands approximately 2.5in high to the top of his head dress. The figure is structurally sound but there are a few minor nibbles to the figure here and there. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the earlier part of last century, and probably made in India or Asia. Weighs just under…

B11307 £22 inc UK Post. Offers welcome. A small carved figure of an elephant in ceremonial dress, with mahout riding, possibly made out of bone or ivory (we don’t think it is faux ivory due to the nature of the carving – the base itself unscrews which is not something that you would normally find in faux ivory).

B11305 £36 inc UK post. Offers welcome. A pair of carved figures in traditional dress, and believed to be made from sustainable warthog tusk (see below). Each figure has painted eyes (rather than inlaid). Note: Warthog ivory or tusk is taken from the constantly growing canine teeth as part as Wildlife Management. The tusks, more often the upper set, are worked much in the way of elephant tusks with all designs scaled down. For further info/photos, please contact us.

B11304 £25 inc UK post. Offers welcome. A vintage, possibly antique, bone handled and steel cut throat razor. There is a groove at the end of the steel but we don’t know what the reason for this is (can someone enlighten us?). No visible makers marks. The steel shaft itself has oxidised and/or stained in places and would benefit from expert treatment but otherwise the razor is structurally sound. For further info/photos, please contact us.

B302 £18 inc UK Post. Offers welcome. A vintage scimitar shaped horn letter opener with white metal band, engraved Recuerdo de Mercedes. We have tried to find out a little about this inscription but we have been unsuccessful so far. The letter opener is structurally sound, although there are a few light surface scratches and scuffs commensurate with age and use. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first or middle part of last century.

There are a few minor nibbles around the edge of the shell, as one might expect of material of this type, but otherwise the shell is structurally sound. The shell measures approximately 5.625in from top to bottom and just under 4.75in across at its widest. For further info/photos, please contact us.
