    I am trying to determine origin and value of this item. It is about 3 inch tall and houses a small ivory plaque. It seems like poetry is written on it along with miniature painting on the other side. Any help in identifying the item or what is written on it will be appreciated.

      I am actually not sure if this is ivory.

      Carved by Qing Yuan (Qing is the last name). Chinese modern. It depicts the God of Longevity. The characters are 100 Ways of Writing Longevity (shou). . . a fairly typical topic.
