    Not sure what this is made from. Maybe bone or ivory and petrified wood. Does anyone recognize it? It came in a box from my grandparents estate.

      What are its dimensions?
    2. Kjane79 Kjane79, 3 months ago
      Oh yeah. That may help. I'm not home right now to measure, but I'd say it's about 3" long by 2" wide and about 2" tall. I can get actual measurements later if you want, but that gives you some idea.

      Possibly a Tagua nut or Palm nut carving. Commonly called Vegetable Nut.
