A rare find! This Victorian learning tool was used throughout the nurseries of America and England. This little alphabet is made of bone (bovine) and has a hand-carved, hand-dyed alphabet in letters of rich red, green and white. It is rare to find the letters carved in a fancy font and colored so cheerfully. All letters are present, save the L. In their original slide-top, dovetailed box with decorative molding around the top. ABC is printed on the lid in a font that matches the bone letters. Each of the letters is about 1/2" high and in lovely condition, all. The box is 2 3/4" X 2" X 1 3/4".
