‘Canada Goose Hunt’ black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory ice axe by David Smith. This intrepid hunter and his guide seem to be in the right place at the right time. Apparently the guide has done an excellent job of placing the decoys which can be see on the lake. Excellent detail in the handmade canoe and its contents, as usual for Adams. Very nice ancient walrus ivory that was used as an ice axe hundreds of years ago by natives in the Northern Bering Sea area. This is from one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. At today’s values, the ice axe alone would be about the price of the piece.
