Unique Carved Art Deco Style Snake Pre Ban Ivory for Unknown Use -- Napkin Holder, Sculpture, Accessory or Egg Cup Holder (although slightly oval openings seems too narrow for eggs).

Appx 3 Inches Length, 2 Inch Base Width, 1.5 Inch Top Width and Depth (76x51x38x38mm). No identifier or hallmark.

In fine condition, intact and without damage. No chips or obvious chips or scratches. The ivory walls are appx .25 inch thickness, which is slightly thin and semi translucent. Design to me appears more Art Deco maybe than Victorian with geometric design lines in it and arch curves on the top and bottom. The Snake wraps around the piece with ridged scales. The snake if you look closely is sculpted on a raised base layer. Estimate 1930's.

I have not seen anything quite like this and can not find reference to it. Certainly possible it is a one of kind.

Unusual and creatively crafted piece. Will leave to those more knowledgeable to gauge the date and origins. If anyone knows more about this item would certainly appreciate more information.

If you do like and collect pre ban ivory will be listing other pieces. Combine and save on shipping.

Ask any questions. Enjoy!

Will be happy to ship Internationally however I have a select list of countries that I am confident or comfortable shipping too. If your country is not listed for this item, please contact me before purchasing to see if it is possible to ship.
