Very nice ivory figure dating from 19/20th century.
There is a market but is limited. Where are you located/country?

The ivory figure was buyed in a auction house in London long time ago. I see this figure is fixed in the area of the fork. I am located on canary islands EU and help a old lady to sell the things.

I don't see any Schreger lines. This appears to be cast resin and not ivory. See the link below.

Cheers,

Good pictures get good responses. I see the Schreger lines now. Agree it is ivory.

The pictures are very bright and we cannot tell if this is ivory or not. Ivory is outlawed for sale for the most part in the USA now. Some countries permit it.

By said weight not resin. If resin show me where the bubbles and other attributed to resin as outlined in the article?
Nicely formed if you think resin don't you think. I think you should have a closer look.
