VINTAGE CARVED HORN ? SEAL INLAID EYES ESKIMO ? $60U.S.
Up for auction, is this vintage carved seal. I believe it, as well as the base that it is mounted on, is carved from horn, and it has little round inlaid eyes made out of what appears to be bone or ivory. It has stiff whiskers inserted around it's mouth, one of which is broken off. Other than that, it is in very good condition. It measures about five inches long by one and a quarter wide, and a tad over three inches high. Very graceful pose. This, along with a group of other items I'm listing, (mostly soapstone carvings), came from my mom's collection of junk. I assume she collected it while we were living in Alaska, where I was born,,,,,,,,way back when.
