Sea Turtle and Coral Reef

$1,250.00

“Sea Turtle and Coral Reef” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory netsinker by Ray Peters. Large sea turtle glides over a coral reef, alone and undisturbed. Not sure, but it could be a hawksbill turtle. Fine stipple work by veteran scrimshander, Peters, on this one. The ancient walrus tusk ivory was used as a net sinker hundreds of years ago in the Northern Bering Sea area. It is in excellent condition with both tiny holes intact. Mounted on a handsome cocobolo stand, this would be a fine addition to any scrimshaw collection.
