ELABORATELY ENGRAVED BONE PANEL TITLED "THE FAREWELL" 19th Century
Depicts a man in a top hat comforting a lady, while his American-flagged ship is at anchor in the distance. Scene is centered below a geometric-patterned Rococo arch, with a foliate vine above, dolphins flanking scene, and a fruiting vine below. Titled in script lettering within a rectangular panel on reverse. Natural formation of the bone, probably a scalpula bone, allows the arched panel to stand on its own. Height 6". Width 5.75".
