Very good condition

Small puzzle ball made of ivory, China
Measurements: Height 11 cm (total), ball diameter 3.5 cm x 3.6 cm, weight 40 g.
Five inner balls.
Consists of various balls in one ball and has been beautifully cut by hand.

The mystery of the ball decorated with holes going inside.

It requires a lot of patience to make something like this.
The ball rests on an ivory standard.

This is an ivory item which dates from before 1947 and which is therefore not in conflict with the CITES regulations.
Comes with an official appraisal report by Drs. J.W. van den Berg (see photo 12); this will be included with the lot.

This lot will be shipped registered and insured, using PostNL or Bpost, both with a tracking code.
NO SHIPPING OUTSIDE EUROPE.

Bidders need to be aware that several countries do not allow importing objects derived from endangered and other protected species, even if a certificate of origin is provided. By bidding, you confirm that you have familiarised yourself with customs laws and regulations of your own country.
