Ivory Bookcase with Ivory Books #202-12 SOLD

Status: Sold
Fantastic German-made c. 1860-70 period hand-carved ivory cabinet with the most wonderfully carved two front doors which open in the center with a knob. The detail of the carving is most probably the best I have ever seen, so tiny and so detailed. There are two columns on the sides of the doors and perfect tiny feet. When the doors open, one finds splendid carved ivory books enameled in green and dark mustard yellow. Additionally, the bottom has a cobalt blue vase. Backing inside is a lively red paper. All the contents are permanently attached. This is one of the finest ivory pieces I have ever seen and is a true treasure. 3 1/2" high, 2" wide which would make this 3/4" scale. Super condition, I do not see any breaks or repairs.
