American Kestrel Duo


“American Kestrel Duo” color scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by Charles W. Conner. Scrimshander is known for his exacting portraits of birds, as can easily be seen here. The American kestrel is the smallest and most colorful falcon in North America and is one of the best known, most frequently observed and readily identifiable raptors in North America. Kestres are conspicous, colorful, open-habitat birds of prey about the size of a Mourning Dove. They are about the size of a blue jay and were once known as chicken hawks. This is done on a very, very large piece of primo mammoth ivory and is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. Excellent opportunity to add a first rate Conner to one’s collection at 2010 prices.
