This lovely antique needle or bodkin case is carved of real ivory and has an all over design of alternating crescents. The quality of the carving is excellent, as are the ivory grain and patina. The ends are turned with concentric circles.
The ivory has a small natural flaw on one side of the bottom but the condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or other damage. It screws together well and measures 3 3/8" long.
