Extra Fine Paris bone brush

Can anybody identify the type of bone this is or perhaps age it? I saw a reference online to a bone toothbrush from the Civil War with the same marking. Could this be a late throwaway mixed in with 20's stuff? I keep hair brushes, combs, and hair bottles for a stylist friend, otherwise it would have got left behind. Glad I held on to it! I didn't notice the marking until tonight. It says "Extra Fine Paris". I guess maybe it's wood, but it doesn't feel like it.

Here are a couple Worthpoint listings of brushes with this mark. The first one was privy dug.
