Have had this item for years. It seems like some sort of tool. Has sort of glass stoned embedded in it. Someone once said it was an oriental castrating tool, but seems unlikely to me.
The second picture is of a little silver cylindrical cloissone box, and a guard dog on the top with chain. There is a chinese seal on the base, and another silver box with a lid inside.
The third is a silver cloissone box the lid of which folds back to form what seems to be a mirror. There is a drawer with two little doors to the front.
The third picture is what I have thought is a tibetan monk. It is made of bamboo I am told.
Have had them all for about 40 years.

    The monk is really neat. How tall is he?

    I reckon he's about 10" tall. Haven't got him with me at the moment so cant say exactly, but I think that is about right. Hope I have done this right, very new here.
