The original would have been ivory, at least it looks like ivory and looks like it would have been from the mid 1800s. I 99.99% guarantee that ain’t an original. 

Yes i see a "real" one on a auctioneers page sold for $350 , i think thats cheap if its from ivory

Yes its a replica of scrimshaw ivory board made I believe from resin - I've seen this one before. I think the outside hole pattern may be to receive small pegs for the card game cribbage.

There are a few different designs of these faux scrimshaw boards around - I have a couple but don't display them as I think they're rather ugly!! No idea who made them or when but there are quite a few in the UK.

I wouldn't give it houseroom if it was real ivory but that's just me!!!
