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.
