Carved African Woman Ivory Bust
This intricately carved bust of an African woman is one I acquired from a Washington, DC estate.  It is was carved from pre-ban elephant ivory.  Pieces like these are no longer imported into the United States.  It stands about 3" tall and is in immaculate condition.  It has a retail value of about $200.
