    Can someone tell me what these are? They feel like a light wood or even plastic. Any help would be great!

      any markings on the bottom? Does it look like a solid piece? I cant tell if its plastic or something else from looking at it

      No markings....but its real light. I read they used to make things out of animal bones but I just don't know.

      well, i am not an expert on asian art, but usually if it is older there is some identification on it. Not saying it isnt old. The one on the right, appears more like bone than the other. But it is much easier to tell from holding it. If it feels solid, it is probably bone, if it was plastic, it probably would not be solid all the way through, probably hollow.

      yes they look like early celluloid or even copal bakelite need testing with simichrome polish it should go brown or yellow to get a good test result..
