    Would love more info on this carving

    I have included pictures and would appreciate any ideas or information on the item.

    I believe it is ivory and have been told it is rather ancient?

    Many Thanks,

    Wow, that's a nice looking piece. If it's the real deal you should have it appraised.

    I can't tell from pictures if it is actually ivory. It has some patina on it so it 'could be old'. The characters written are Chinese. Probably a poem.

    Depending on age, it could worth a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. It may be worth your time, money, and effort to take to a professional.

    Search "antique Chinese ivory carvings" to see other examples.
    They told me I should hold on to my dreams.
    So I went back to sleep...

    Without in hand, I lean toward Ivory - check inside for pock marks showing bone.

    Lovely piece!

    A beautiful piece can you put with something for a size reference. I wonder if it isn't a carved shell of some type. Whatever material it is it is a work of art.
