Which is what they were made to resemble. This may be remolded, actual amber; it may be bakelite material. It is from the early part of the 20th century, if bakelite, and may be older if melted and molded amber. I do believe this was molded first, and then carved, whatever it is. There is a plug inside, to hold the cap on, but no spoon and no signs of use; by the early 20th cent. Interest worldwide in collecting these had soared and many were made then to satisfy collectors. That is all I know about this. If you have more info, I would welcome it. Please scrutinize all pics, and ask any questions, thanks for looking!
