Just a super sweet old carved whimsy, 5 inches long, with a bit of weight, making it useful atop a stack of papers, but also great just hung from a nail on the wall. I especially love the carving marks on the round sides of the ball, reminding one of how much effort it would take to make one of these!
5" long x 1 3/4" wide and deep. Very good condition. I am not certain the age on this but know that it was held in a family estate for many years; likely close to 100 years.
