Mammoth Ivory Strawberry Snuff Bottle
There are still a very few skilled carvers of Ivory in China. This lovely little snuff bottle [1 3/4" tall] is an example of fine carving. Photos show the details, Insect atop the spoon, and another siphons into the sweet strawberry. Signed and ornate. This bottle is legal and the tusk it came from is a long extinct Woolly Mammoth [Mastadon]. Wonderful color and nice pure piece of ivory. A wonderful addition to a collection.
