Vintage Carved Pre Ban Ivory/Bone Whimsey Puzzle Ball

Vintage Carved Pre Ban Ivory or Bone Whimsey Swirling Dragons Puzzle Ball on Figural Stand

Up for auction is a beautiful vintage well carved ivory or bone puzzle ball and stand. Amazing Details! It measures about 5 3/4" high and the ball measures about 1 1/2" across. Counting the outside, t are at least four carved layers to the ball. The multiple carved concentric balls inside appear to be un-damaged except for one hairline shown in a photo below. Many of these vintage whimsey or puzzle balls were often broken from the constant movement inside. The stand is carved with an Oriental figure. The pieces come apart for storage.

It is vintage and came from my grandmother's estate. I am not sure w it was made since she traveled all over the world. Please see our other auctions for more miniature vintage hand carved ivory or bone figurines. We would be happy to combine shipping.
