Subject:Bone or Ivory China
Posted By: Steen Wed, Jun 30, 2021 IP: 83.92.110.13

Hi
I have asked around about these two Chinese Emperor and emperes. I can only post 3 pictures. From the pictures can you tell if its Ivory or bone??

The Schreger lines identifying it as ivory are quite evident in your last photo of the base. Sorry I can not translate the markings.

Judging by the last image it's elephant ivory. It has the shregger lines.
Carving is circa 60's/70's from Hong Kong.
