Set of Three Eskimo Ivory Spinning Tops
This is a rare group of Eskimo carved and scrimshawed novelty items. These are three matching walrus ivory tops with delicate and decorative scrimshaw on their top surface. The middle sized one is unbroken and is the only one without some damage. The top of the stem of the smallest one is broken off and there is a nick on it's edge and a crack going half way across it's top. The largest one has a nick on its edge as well. As can be seen in the photos, these have a wonderful form and keeping the three together allows for some interesting display possibilities, not to mention the fun one can have with spinning a top
