Early ivory box with hinged cover. The cover is deeply carved with a Medieval Knighthood ceremony taking place within an Orthodox cathedral and bordered by carved designs. The sides of the almost oval box is elaborately carved with rose garlands and bead work and balances four carved ball feet. Measures 3 1/2 inches by 4 inches across. The cover is constructed of four layers of ivory. The thin ivory bottom has pieces that have split and glued back. Natural lines. Interesting and well carved. Cannot be shipped internationally or to states prohibiting the shipment of ivory.
