Made purely of ivory, this paper cutter has a straight edge and a round tip. Its handle is decorated with high-relief-style flower basket, filled with many flowers, some in bud while some others in full bloom. The layers of flowers and relative positions of intertwined twigs are clearly illustrated in a life-like manner. While serving as a practical tool, this gadget is also a delight to appreciate with its fine ivory texture, clear and pleasant grains, as well as the smooth and lustrous surface.
