Ivory Antique Page Turner with Figural Dog on Handle
This is a stunning and very unique ivory page turner, made around 1850. It is quite rare to see such a fine ivory specimen in such superb condition, considering its age. The rounded blade has a lovely curve to it and is free of chips and cracks. Carved into the handle is an expertly-depicted dog in very high relief; so high, it is almost completely three-dimensional. The hound has an alert expression on its face, ears pulled back, one paw raised, and is wearing what looks like a cape with a shield on it. Its eye is made of brown and black glass and is quite life-like. This piece is in excellent condition and would make a truly special addition to any collection.
It measures 12" x 1 1/2" x 1/2".
