Bubinga with Ancient Mammoth Ancient Walrus Tusk Ivory Nameplate
Black and white scrimshaw on pre-ban African by David Smith. Award winning scrimshander, Smith, has outdone himself with this stunning piece. You can almost feel the extreme cold that Anana must be experiencing. The rich fullness of the fur perfectly frames her beautiful face. What a creative composition! The back side depicts two salmon as seen in Northwest tribal art. Also, take a minute to admire the complicated inlay work and design of the stand itself. A work of art. Everything works in this outstanding piece. It will be the focal point of a serious scrimshaw collection. There are many people who do scrimshaw today, but only a scant handful that work on this level.
This scrimshaw is done on pre-ban African Ivory. Since the passage
of the Cities Treaty in 1973, there has been no African Ivory brought into the U.S. However, Ivory that
was in the U.S. prior to 1973 can legally be sold and shipped within the U.S. This piece of scrimshaw is
located with an associate in the state of Idaho. It can be ordered directly from our website. It will
then be shipped to your address anywhere in the U.S. from our Idaho associate. This complies with
California state laws. Any questions, feel free to email or call us.
