I love the carved faces on this pair of trinket boxes, which I believe are African and made of bone and what appears to be silver or silver plate (it is quite shiny.) She certainly looks like a crowned queen, and he looks like quite a wise man...and also a bit like Santa Claus! These would be great on a vanity or dresser used as pill boxes or containers for rings and earrings.
Sold as a pair. Each box measures 2 5/8" long x 1 1/4" wide x 1 1/8" tall. Very good condition, with just a bit of scratching to the bone, which may be original to the material/the making of the carvings.
