A few days later he made this one. It is antique estate ivory - a piece we got from an estate sale years ago that dates from the 1920's so guaranteed not poached. Voila - Neo-Classical elegance at its finest topped with a fresh water pearl. And it fits so beautifully in the hand and feels like silk. Not stopping there, the end unscrews to provide a storage cavity for extra hooks. No, they are not mine. One day, when and if I have mastered the skill I will ask him to do one for me. My plain wooden one is just fine for now. We will be selling these in our Etsy store for those with the purse and taste for them. I just had to share the beauty of them.
