Possible late 19th Century Busk

From the seller:

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

Very early hand carved corset busk, possibly 18th-19th century. Very rare and not often found! Possibly carved on a sailing ship? 8 inches in length.

From Me:

I'm really not sure this is a busk. 8" is pretty short and it doesn't look finished. If it is a busk, it looks like a spoon busk, which would put it in the 1880's.
