    Vintage Eskimo Artifact

    This pointed artifact is seemingly carved from bone with a hollow base. The pointed tip is carefully carved with geometric shapes. This can be displayed as an artifact or worn as a necklace. We do not believe it was intended as a necklace, but rather as a tie or toggle of some sort. Either way, it presents an interesting case for discussion.

    2 3/4 in. long x 3/8 in. at its widest point. A leather cord with sterling silver clasp will be included which we can customize for any length up to 22 inches. Or, we can leave the cord unfinished and let you customize it to any length you wish.

    Vintage Russian Dog Sled Team

    A dog sled team carving mounted on a hard black base. The carving comes in a box with a label with Cyrillic writing, including a date of 1974. From our research, it appears that the carving was made in Russia from bone. The base is made from Ebonite or a similar dark, hard rubber material. The back of the carving is unfinished, showing the organic nature of the material, which appears to be bone.

    Two caveats: we do not know if the carver was Siberian Yupik, or an indigenous person at all. We also suspect the carving was made from a template, because of the extreme evenness and symmetry of the features and details. Nevertheless, it is a very interesting and attractive carving.

    8 1/2 in. long x 1 3/4 in. high; base is 5/8 in. deep, while carving is thinner.
