    Possibly ivory or bone. Not sure. Definitely etched on design. Has initials, RC at lower left corner.

      Possibly Scrimshaw ?? Have a look on scrimshaw images and you will see what I mean. Neil

      The photos are too blurry to see details.

      It could be. You will have to do your own research, I would start with google search and the question 'is scrimshaw valuable ' ?

      Looks like a modern souvenir/ gift shop piece from a NE coastal area. Minimal value.
