This wonderful and very rare antique cribbage board is carved of ivory and engraved with patterns of Madras work dots and circles on one side. It's a form of scrimshaw work where black lacquer is flowed into the engraved designs. It has a lovely mellow patina and grain pattern. The four feet each contain a playing peg which unscrews from the top.

The condition is excellent with no loss or damage and the lacquer designs are unusually intact. It measures 7" long x 1 1/8" wide and about 1 1/4" high. It's English and dates to the early 19th century. A variety of ivory Madras work sewing tools are shown on p. 87 of Nerylla Taunton's book "Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries".
