Scrimshaw on Carved, Inked Bone Piece, Oriental. (C14005)
This is one of four by the same hand - carved and inked onto an oval hollow piece of bone, and having a thin bronze band around the top. All four were once mounted on a bamboo pole, but this has long gone, so selling separately. Item measures 11.6 cm long, 3.7 cm wide and 2.6 mm deep (4.1/2 inches by 1.1/2 inches by 1 inch). Very good condition.
