The expertly woven ovoid purse was made by Farnum in 1978, a firm well regarded for their quality products, and in their first year of business in 1978, making this purse an early and highly collectible item. The condition is excellent but the underside is mossed indicating regular use as a functional item. The underside is signed Farnum 1978. Dimension: Overall 12" h; 9 1/2" w

A difficult wood with which to work, ebony is also an exceedingly attractive one as this hand carved crocodile attests with its exotic and realistic hide. Bone teeth and eyes complete the sculpture. These figures date from the early to mid 20th C, possibly of Indian origin, and are frequently found with lost eyes and teeth, making this one a choice specimen.
