JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Thank you I appreciate your help and am researching this now.

Hello, thank you for your patience I have researched this extensively and found the value in today's market is $8500.00 and being ivory you will need to write the entire providence of this item. Who your grandfather was and when he brought this home, how he obtained it - if it was a gift to him or he bought it. This helps establish the background and the newspaper clipping with the replica along the original box and packing is wonderful. . There are not many in existence today and I have spent many hours looking through articles and found little said about this certain one. There are several thousands of replicas but none done as nicely and unique as this one. Thnak you for sharing this.
