In good condition

This is an composite tooth with very beautiful carvings. Weight approx. 1800g
Length approx. 65cm. The owner said that it was made around 1950 which would correspond to the patina. Over the years, a light browny patina has set in
On 08/09/2017 I visited an ivory carver and he confirmed that this is bone.
