We had some carved in Hong Kong too, just as souvenirs. Big round ones like this,
about 1.5" in diameter and 6" tall! My registered one is bone, oval shaped, about 1/3" on the long axis, and 2" long, and I still haven't gotten used to carrying it in 25 years! But every time a package comes to the door, I need to be able to reach in, dig it out, stamp the receipt, and take the package... Signing is SOOOO much easier.
After-dinner with Keemun tea and a Pepperidge Farm Chocolate chip cookie! Yippee!
