The original is made of ivory. Unfortunately, it is very badly damaged. Although this instrument is quite small, its sound power should not be underestimated. I have included the Jacob Hes in my program because people with smaller hands in particular can play difficult literature "more easily" with it. The simple version of the instrument is also suitable for children.
