A pair of Ivory (I think) carvings. Likely acquired during the 1920's-1930's in China.
Approximately 11 inches long by 1 3/4 to 2 inches wide with intricate carvings of a village/royal palace scene inside, and relief of a fisherman and mountains on the outside. Coloring is faded but still bright on the inside, not so much on the outside.
Looking for more information on what exactly these are, and how old they may be. I have been searching/asking for info for years, and have yet to find anyone whom has seen anything similar to this.
Any info is much appreciated!
