Ivory Disc Shaped Lid


About this object

Ivory disc with engraved decoration on one side and a hole in the centre. Only one or two of the engraved long leaves of the central medalion decoration survive. The medalion is framed by a band of thin circular llines as is the edge of the lid. In between these two bands there is a band of small parallel curved lines. The disc is probably the lid of a circular box. In several pieces it is mended and fixed to a perspex mount, one third of the disc is missing.
