Bone syringe measuring 3.25 by 0.25 inches diameter at its widest point. The syringe housing is constructed out of one piece of animal bone that was lathed and drilled-out to become a hollow tube. The syringe trigger is broken off. The screw-on tip that would receive the needle is lost. The plunger on the inside is constructed from another piece of animal bone that has been lathed. One end has a screw fitting that connects to the trigger portion of the syringe. The other end is lathed to accept a natural rubber or other material to form the gasket.
