This wooden Chinese puzzle consists of circular frame holding a sphere which in turn encloses several other concentric spheres. These puzzles were common at the beginning of the 20th century and many of them, made in ivory, came from India. This one is in mahogany and is rumoured to have been turned by Stephen Clarke in the Irish Home Industries Workshop, Ballycastle. Courtesy of Ballycastle Museum.
