Just the black bases you can see on the pictures.
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Hello and thank you for the reply. These are a composite ivory. They are made with icory dust or fish bone ground and mixed with a resin. These are sold in China towns and curio shops in cities for tourists and people wanting the pair of figurines. The price of each is 250.00 on the secondary market. They do call them a composite ivory figurine. Very nice pair. https://cites.org/eng/resources/pub/E-Ivory-guide.pdf the link prior will tell you the differences. On page 25 is where the ivory substitutes begin and will show you the differences. When you find figures like this and they are attached to the bases they are usually the resin based ivory substitutes. Thank you for coming to just answer. I am happy to help you. If I may be offurther assistance please let me know.
