Made from a piece of elephant ivory only 1/4" thick. The artist created the rose on an angle allowing deep carving and giving the rose lots of realistic depth to the petals. The rose is on a branch with a leaf to each side. Measures 2" long, 1-1/8" tall and weighs5.2 grams. The clasp on the back is mounted with a peg and glue for securing.No chips or cracks and is in lovely condition with light yellowing from age. Circa 1960's. Beautiful little piece!
