Question: Hello, can you describe anything about the date and worth of the first piece, which is bone with (I believe), a copper base and carved on both sides. For the second, a Chinese family name seal, could you tell me a possible date, worth, and translation of the Chinese characters? Neither have signatures. Thank you! Kyera
RD Langer answers: Kyera, the first piece, whether it is bone or ivory, must be examined for an accurate appraisal. The stones on the lower portion of the piece may be authentic or fake turquoise, or coral. I cannot give an evaluation unless I examine it.
