“Lapps” color scrimshaw on complete ancient walrus tusk ivory by Heidi Robichaud. Created in 1984, this masterpiece is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. The way the scrimshander used the natural colors and tones in the ivory is simply amazing. This is one of those rare tusks that is black on the outside, but much lighter once it is polished. Originally, it came with a stand by the late Ken Fredericks, but the collector wanted all of his pieces mounted on oak stands. This one even has a brass nameplate. Just study the close up photos. Cannot say enough about this one.
