    Wild Boar's Tusk.
    Pair of tusks from a wild boar (a Captain Cook boar, New Zealand). One is in its original state, unpolished. Can be carefully polished and decorated or capped in gold or silver. Hollow down to the last couple of inches. Measures 11.25 cm wide and 2 cm thick. Has the usual wear groove at the end where the tusk overlaps the lower jaw teeth. Very good original condition, has a split at the widest end about 3 cm long - if you want to polish this, just cut this bit off. The other tusk has a cut in it and is slightly shorter. In the very early 20th century it was quite a fashion to make brooches and pendants out of these ivories. (The wild boar is not a protected species).

    Four Antique Masquerade Masks, Full Face.
    Four old face masks - one is a bull, one is a clown's face, one a Chinese Coolie face, one just a face. They are complete faces, not half masks, and they all have signs of age and storage (folding presents a few problems). However, they could all be restored fairly easily with tape and paint. To go through them: The Bull has tears - two one one side of his face, and a few underneath and around the chin. The Clown has a couple of small tears around the chin, but over all is very good - he has green and red straw hair, and eyelids that can be blinked by pulling rather crude strings through his cheeks. He has been folded, and needs steaming out. The Face has small tears at the sides, but overall is very good - again, having been folded, it needs steaming or similar. The Chinese Coolie has damage to the chin, sides and one eye. He has a marvellous hat with a rosette. Also a victim of folding. Quite unique carnival masks.
