Antique Ivory or Bone Frog Carvings

4 small and beautifully detailed carvings of frogs!
The 3 larger figures measure 1 inch long by ½ inch wide. The tallest measures ½ inch high.
All three have a hole drilled through at the jaw hinge.
The smallest frog is only ¾ by ¾ inch across and ¼ inch high. It has no hole drilled.

They definitely have some age to them. I would place them at mid-20 th century or earlier.

These do not appear to be elephant ivory, but some other bone or tusk material --
bottom sides have a darkened reticulated surface.

Brown markings on one frog appear to be natural coloration within the tusk material.
