About Restoring Antique Ivory: The Bad and the Worse

This is what I have to work with when someone tries a do-it-yourself antique restoration before giving up and sending it to me. I sometimes have to first repair others mistakes before I can properly restore a piece. The elephant has bad damage but is more typical of work I receive with broken and missing pieces that I will hand carve. It will take some time but I will properly restore both of these antique pieces.
