56cm Georgian Carved Faux Ivory + Twist Whale Bone Handle Back / Wig Scratcher For Sale
56cm Georgian Carved faux Ivory + Twist Whale Bone Handle Back / Wig Scratcher Description :On offer is superbly carved Georgian back scratcher (although I have also heard them referred to as wig scratchers). The end is carved as a hand in faux ivory, and very well done, with details to the finger nails etc. Similar quality carving on items such as walking sticks or desk seals and you would expect to pay £200+. The handle is of the same material and also shows good graining to the natural material. The flexible handle is of antique whale bone and has an intricate double twist to the centre. A fine and unusual antique piece, approximately 200 years old. One old small repair to the middle finger (the end appears to be pegged rather than glued). Please refer to photos (all of which enlarge). Dimensions : 56cm (22") in length. Good luck if you decide to offer and If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
