Brandywine Militaria
$179.00
old walrus tusk with strange billiken carving. While usually represented as a smiling cherub type creature this face is more haunting and menacing. It is also less invasivly carved into the tusk which otherwise keeps its natural shape. A little bit around the back side and below the face is a signature or maker mark. A hole at the smoothed off base indicates that this was once mounted on something. Very interesting piece. Just under nine inches in length.
