VINTAGE~REAL IVORY~HAND CARVED~ASIAN~PUZZLE BALL

Hand Crafted~Dragon Puzzle Ball w/stand~

You are bidding on a Chinese Ivory Elephant Puzzle Ball. The puzzle ball is 2" in diameter and the dragon stand is approximately 3 ½" high. It has a screw post that holds the ball. I am not sure if this ball sits without care on this pedestal or if it needs to be glued. I was afraid to ruin the item if I did the latter but the ball is really not secure enough for me to remain loose. T are at least 8 inner balls. I really could not count them all. The first inner one features dots and stars and the second inner ball seems to have just holes. The outer ball and the stand feature mini dragons. The over all condition is good except for the base problem and it does need cleaning. I also do not know how to properly clean such an item. It is amazing in design and very well done. T is slight discoloration on the bottom of the base that does not detract from the beauty and I am not sure if it will clean off. I did a close up of the bottom of the base. T is a carved dragon on the outside of the ball. This is an amazing piece for any collection with no reserve.
