Hakusui Pre-ban Carved Ivory

Necklace, Bracelet and Earring Parure

Offered for your consideration is this wonderful hand-carved ivory set, made by Hakusui Ivory Company. The necklace is composed of 61 round rose beads, graduating in size from 3/16" to 9/16" and is 17" long. It has an ivory threaded screw-in clasp. The bracelet has 10 ivory panels (13/16" x 9/16" x 3/16") separated with 3/16" beads and strung on 2 elastic cords - measures about 7" in circumference. The rose earrings are screw backs and have about an 11/16" diameter and 1/4" in thickness (I don't believe these earrings were ever taken out of the box). All pieces are like new! The set comes complete with its original box - in very good condition. Also included is the "Story of Ivory" - a 10 page ivory information/care pamphlet produced by Hakusui Ivory Co., LTD. dated March 1959. The pamphlet folds out accordion-style with no creases, rips or tears but does show minor age-toning. According to the pamphlet, these pieces were created out of elephant ivory.
