‘Warship Stern View” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by Peter Kinney. Another oldie, but goodie, from one of our long time collectors’ estate. Dated 1981 and it is vintage Kinney, strong, dark etching. This is done on ancient walrus tusk ivory that was used as an ice axe. Be sure to view the markings on the back of the tusk. Also, take time to admire the intricate scroll work on the vessel’s stern. Amazing. Very heavy ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact, by the way weighing in at a little over one pound. Not much like this around anymore.
