Scope and content

This object is a small rectangular piece of wood with eight ivory tabs running along the edges. The wood is a dark brown color with a shiny finish. Painted on the top of the wooden block is a flower design with short and long leaves in gold and black paint. Running along both sides of the wood are eight ivory tabs with rounded ends that can be lifted up when pulled.
