Boleadoras from Argentina with Metal Capped Bone Balls

This bola set sold on eBay in 2006 for $100. The seller said that the balls appeared to be made out of bone (or ivory?) and they had gold leaf end caps. The gold leaf is probably plated over silver or steel. The three leather ropes are stiff. The entire piece was in very good condition. There was no information regarding size or weight.
