    This is a wonderful 44mm Hand Carved Tubular Bone Bead with Squirrel.  There is an openwork design composed of a crouching squirrel with a large bushy tail that arches over the back and a spiraling tangle of lined and knotted branches with striated leaves.  Each end cap has a stylized flower with nine petals.  The bead measures 1.75" (44mm) long by 0.875" (22mm) in diameter with a 0.0787" (2mm) hole.  The pure white bone appears to be from a water buffalo.  The bead was probably made in China within the last 30 years.  This 44mm Hand Carved Tubular Bone Bead with Squirrel is in very good condition.  There is a small crack at one end which appears to have occurred naturally and does not affect the integrity of the bead.
