Subject:Help reading Chinese paper weights
Posted By: jon A Sat, Nov 30, 2019 IP: 2601:1c0:5c03:810:61

Hi can anyone tell me the age and what these paper weights say. I believe they are made out of bone. Happy holidays and any help is appreciated in advance.

Your scroll weights are definitely bone. You can see the calcium deposits etc.
Hand carved and imo date from the early to middle 20th century.
