Subject:Re: Makers mark? on carved ivory box.

Just curious why you are describing this item as ivory. Does it have Schreger lines?
In your close up photo of the mark the material appears to be a resin faux ivory material.
You don't give the dimensions, but looking at the showcase it is sitting on we can see a camera which provides some scale.
Consider the monumental size a tusk would have to be to accommodate the top panel of the box.
Show us some Schreger lines, the bottom of the lid, the bottom of the box.
It's a cool piece I would buy as a decorator item to look at and put things in, but I certainly would not buy it as an ivory box.
