Purchased at an estate auction:
an estate carved ox bone necklace. It is a nice heavy piece; I am uncertain of it's origin or exact age, although it is a vintage piece. I purchased it because I thought it was much nicer than the average pieces that show up at auctions. The necklace is 20" long with a 2" center disk. The 4 strand group that forms the sides of the necklace is approx. 3/4" wide. The necklace weighs over 3 ounces. Two of the rings have a natural indentation of the bone, that could be mistaken for a chip.
