    This item consists of two different dice, a Vintage Bakelite Die and an Antique Bone Die.  The Bakelite die is butterscotch in color with 0.125" in diameter recessed black dots.  It measures 0.625" on all sides and does test positive for Bakelite.  The bone die is ivory in color with visible brown striations and 0.1875" in diameter recessed black dots.  The dots appear to have been hand stamped and are not evenly spaced.  It measures about 0.625" on all sides, although there are some variations as it was probably cut by hand in bovine bone.  Makers and ages are unknown.  The color of the bone suggests that this die is an antique.  Both the Vintage Bakelite Die and Antique Bone Die are in very good condition.  The Bakelite die has no damage or wear.  The bone die has some minor edge irregularities, which may have occurred when it was made.
