PLEASE disregard the first photo as this was a different ox bone item I previuosly sold. I cannot figure out a way to delete the first picture via Hipswap. I had this same issue once before and something in their system doesn not permit deleting the first photo. All the remaining pics are the correct ones. Thanks. QUITE vintage Solid Hand carved OX BONE(can smell the bone) and my cats and dog will not stop sniffing it. This is considered a Snuff Statue/Trinket Box. Intricate detailing with 2 turtles carved onto the top. Turtles are considered highly regarded as one of the religious icons to the Chinese. I apologize but the very first photo is from one of my other ox bone pieces and I am not able to delete the first photo posted. Will be posting the other shortly anyway. Beautiful Bronze all the way around the entire center from the handle to open the box to the hinge in the rear. Gorgeous handpainted artwork throughout the entire piece. AMAZING!!! Simply a gorgeousitem and unique/rare/vintage handmade ONLY in China. MUST SEE TO REALLY APPRECIATE. EXTREMELY SOLID CARVED OX BONE. Measures over 3'' long, over 2'' wide and nearly 2'' high. Nice size!!CLEAN with no flaws that I can see and I have owned this for over 10yrs. I own many pieces of rare/vintage ox bone as well as many other BONE Items I have collected over the years, most of which have come directly from China. I just have too much of EVERYTHING from years of collecting. You will 100% treasure this one. GUARANTEED!! Thanks so much.
