3D Charles Dickens captured in Ivorex


Charles Dickens in Ivorex offered by Tiger Books of Canterbury

Do you know what Ivorex is? Well, you are looking at an image of Charles Dickens in his study created from Ivorex, which was a wax-like material created by the B. Osborne Company who operated from 1899 to 1965.  These three-dimensional plaques are collectible and quite rare. This particular plaque is offered by Tiger Books of Canterbury and is surely a bargain at £50. At the peak of the Osborne Company’s success, thousands of these pieces were produced and sold around the world.
