Winner gets an antique faux ivory carved figure of a Chinese elder on a stand. I don't know what the exact material composition is, but it looks like some sort of early composite used to replicate ivory. The material is harder to the touch than ivory, almost like a ceramic. The stands appear to be made out of the same material, it is NOT wood. I am not sure of the age of this figurine, but I am guessing that it's an antique judging from the home it came out of. There are no marks or signatures on this figure. It measures roughly 7cm tall and 3cm wide (including stand). For a small figure, it certainly has some weight to it. Regardless of it's age or composition, it is beautifully carved and would make a nice addition to any collection. If anyone has any information they could provide me regarding their opinion on age or composition, please private message me and I can update my listing. Please enlarge my pictures and ask any questions prior to bidding.
