Description

Scrimshaw is the old and beautiful art form of carving or engraving on ivory or bone, then highlighting the design with pigment. In the days of old, a sailing needle on whale’s teeth was darkened with candle black, soot, or tobacco juice as a way to pass the time on the high seas. Eventually it gave way to today’s fine engravers on fossilized ivory and synthetic composites, darkened with inks and patinas.

This lovely display piece features a deer antler mounted vertically on a wooden base. The scrimshaw is done by Lynn Mello. Her work delicately details a portrait of a wolf. It can be used as a desk accessory or given as a gift to anyone with rustic or outdoorsy decor in their home.
