Majestic Snowy Owl

$2,337.50

“Majestic Snowy Owl” color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory by the late Kelly Mulford. Known to be one of the very best scrimshanders of his era, Mulford had a soft spot for birds of all types. The snowy owl depicted here is a fine example of his work. Done in 19983, it is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. This is one of the heaviest owls as they have a great amount of feathers in order to keep warm. Even their feet are protected by feathers. The snowy owl was the favorite pet of Harry Potter, so it must have special powers. The artifact, between 500-1500 years old, was used as a fire starter. Excellent opportunity to add a first rate Mulford to your collection at 1983 prices.
