I came across these interesting items the other day and I have not been able to figure out what exactly they are. The best idea that I have heard is that they are game pieces of some kind. They look to be hand carved ivory or bone. They are very detailed. Most of them look like oriental, possibly Japanesse, weapons. I found them in this box, which may or may not be where they belong. The only writing on the box is in english and says "New box adopted May 1st, 1911". The design on the box looks like it could be oriental. Who knows, they might not go together at all. Has anyone seen anything like this before or know any more information? I am stumped.
