18th CENTURY IVORY Figural MONK Page turner
This is genuine ivory and such a wonderful old carving of a monk with exceptional carving on the blade of the turner. The attention to detail is something that just makes your mouth gape open because the figure is carved with such a lifelike pose. The gentleman looks like st NICK to some but I was told it was a monk who was also some sort of craftsman. He has two tools in his hands and an apron that ties in the back. On his head is a skull cap of sorts. The fleur de lis drapes down the handle of the blade.This measures 10" long and 1" wide and has rich coloring to the aged ivory.This is not bone. As you can see by the photo of his legs in the back he needs repair so he will be sold as is. Vintage and antique items are not mint nor are they perfect. Sold as is and as found (used and vintage) Since this is Irreplaceable there can be no returns on this sale.. Please use photos to make your decisions.
