I have a set of old grips that appear to be ivory. Whatever they're made of, I'm trying to figure out what revolver they'd go on. The seller told me they belong on a Colt, but which one... Any ideas?

I have no idea, but it might be helpful if you took some pictures of them on some grid paper with a set scale or ruler in the shot for comparison.

Kinda looks like it would fit a Colt New Service:

Next to a Ruger Speed Six:

There is no way to I.D. them with the photo's you posted so far.

Colt made a host of different frame size DA revolvers with a square butt like your grips.

Possibly another photo would help, but this time.

Put the bottom edge of the grip against the ruler, with one edge in line with one of the inch marks, so an accurate measurement of the butt can be seen.

We have a lot of things base from ivory in Africa. The lines or split marks and color of them made me thing giraffe bone when I saw these.

They really have that appearance. Giraffe bone is very dence and polishs up quite a lot like ivory. Very well could be ivory, either way they are a nice addition.
