      Well you should be able to tell if it is metal or wood. Looks to me like it is African Ebony and sometime in the past it had tusks.

      Hi, Kutchi. Does it seem to have hollow legs as well? (Therefore not wood?) Not sure if there is a way to link the photos/comments on the ones Mark and I posted.

      By the chips that can be seen near the tusks wholes (white material below the dark paint, ceramic), it cannot be Ebony, it might be some kind of ceramic or maybe marphinite.

      hi to you all
      the legs seams to be hollow as you described sharminf
      i do not think its ceramic as it is so heavy
    5. Sharminf Sharminf, 1 year ago
      Yes, I agree, sounds like metal when tapped and does not "feel" like ceramic.

      If you would like to contact Kutchi personally, you can post you email address here. CW members can only learn from each other if they share their knowledge here.
