Asian Woman Statue - I think real Ivory?
Hi, Can anyone out there help me with info about this figure / statue? We found two of these in my Gram's house when we were cleaning it out last summer (she collected everything and anything). I have this one and my cousin has the other. This is about 13.5' high and pretty heavy for such a delicate looking piece. I did a little homework on ivory and I think this may be real ivory...... It is heavy, cold to the touch, very smooth and solid cream color without any lines, marks or cracks and it didn't melt when I poked it with a hot needle. I'm a bit uncomfortable owning a piece of ivory even if it's an antique - I've found some conflicting information about the legality of it - I really appreciate any help and comments.
