Hand carved doesn't mean what it used to, as usual, vintage kicks arse!

Carved in ivory, these figurines depict Vishnu's 10 'avatars' from Hindu Mythology. This artifact, which is displayed in the National Museum (New Delhi) is from around late 18th Century south India.

Boar brushes, brass razors, and hard pucks ARE traditional wet shaving. Everything else is modern day fluff for the girly men.

Wow!

RETICULATED BALL, CHINA, 19TH CENTURY. THE RUBIK’S CUBE OF THE ANCIENT WORLD

Chinese puzzle balls are ornate decorative items that consist of several concentric spheres, each of which rotates freely, carved from the same piece of material.

That's pretty cool. I have made a few Queen brush handles.

I got this chess set back in 68. I have passed it on to my youngest son.
