You could think it is made from ivory...

High quality carving, turned work and polish in a well chosen bone part give this result!

Only one side shows the unmistakable tiny blood vessels marks for bone material...

When closed, it is 8.5 cm or 3.3/8".
The hook part screw on the handle to get a handy length of 12.5 cm or 4.3/4".

More than 150 years old and still in great condition!

    Thanks for the info on bone and ivory. I think I will still have trouble.

    This is amazing.

    Thanks all 11 lovers!

    Gillian, yes, it must have been cherished, and still is :-)

    Racer, identifying these materials can be tricky, but when you have the clues, it is far more easy!
    Thank you for your visit and appreciation!
