Vintage Native Alaskan Walrus Tusk Ivory Two Level Bracelet w/Carved Figures

$750.00

Vintage Native Alaskan Walrus Tusk Ivory Two Level Bracelet w/Carved Figures

A striking bracelet made from walrus ivory, with protective bears surrounded by whales, human figures, sled dogs and seals. The style, the use of red ink, and the existence of two levels of animals places this item at around the 2nd quarter of the 20th century. We’ve only seen one twin-level bracelet like this, almost identical in form and style, that is currently in a museum collection.

The bracelet has an inside circumference of about 6 1/2 inches; because it is strung on elastic, it will fit around most wrist sizes. It is approximately 1 1/8 inches wide.

Please note that products containing ivory or other marine mammal components cannot be shipped to New York, New Jersey, California, and Hawaii. As of this writing, it is still legal to ship these products to all other states. Click here to see a brochure published by the U.S. Department of the Interior with more details on this topic.

Because of marine mammal content, the bracelet can not be mailed out of the U.S.
