Miniature Soapstone Holy Bible book

A fun folky piece; a hand carved miniature book made from soapstone.  It has a carved spine and cover, with carved pages as well.   It has “HOLY BIBLE” carved on the cover, although I think this may have been a later addition as the quality of the rest of the work is better than the etching for the name. The piece measures 1 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.

There are two chips on the back edge of the “book cover” at the top and bottom and a few scratches on the back cover.
