Up for auction is a beautiful vintage ivory puzzle ball and stand. The stand measures 4 inches tall. It does have a fairly large piece missing from the rim. It is decorated with a carved dragon. The ball measures approx. 1.75 inches. It has at least 8 balls that I can count, t may be more. It is very hard to count them as the others keep moving as you are trying to make it to the center. A real mind teaser.The out side ball has one piece missing but it is hard to find, a picture is included. I know for sure that ball two and three have pieces missing and pictures of this are included. Beyond that it is really hard to tell. I have had this piece for at least 15 years and it is only recently that I discovered that it has some valve, thanks to ebay. I just thought that it was the most beautiful little ball. As per the rules this piece will only be sold and shipped only within the USA.
