Chinese Carved Ivory Apprentice Ball / Puzzle Ball Antique C.1890 

A nicely carved Chinese ivory apprentice ball or puzzle ball. The idea is to line up all the holes of the many layers inside the ball; some of the larger puzzle balls are rumored to have over 30 layers! This lovely little pendant / charm is set with a gilt metal bail and would look wonderful on the end of a necklace or on a charm bracelet. Good antique condition. 

Diameter: 1.7 cm or 0.7"

Weight: 2.9 g or 1.9 penny weight
