Eskimo Carved Walrus Ivory Bear
This is a fairly contented bear resting with his front paws stretched out, looking at you with a pleasant grin. His body is covered with parallel rows of "hash marks" which cover his whole body. He is mounted on a wooden stand and secured by a 1/4" peg which fits into one of two holes in the underside of his body which were used to secure him in his earlier life. He originally was part of a very large hinged and folding ivory cribbage board. 30 1/2" long that he would have shared with a number of other fascinating critters and more. Unfortunately, when I bought it, the board was apart with breaks and some of the critters and other parts missing so we could never bring the whole together again. I would have loved to have seen a picture of the piece before its demise.
L. 4 ⅜" : W. 2 ⅛" : H. 2 ½" (measurements include stand)
