Look-alike Miniature Ivory

A series of miniature novelty containers featuring historical figures have the appearance of antique ivory. New pieces are cast in resin, or plastic, in the approximate color of ivory with an antique patina. Facial features, hair, clothing and accessories are picked out in hand-painted detail.

Master models are created in England then shipped to China for mold work and casting. Retail prices averaged $17 a figure.
