Narwhal Ivory Flat Rectangles
Narwhal Ivory tusk pieces are as shown, price is for 1 piece. The size is just under 1" long and 1/4" thick about 3/8" wide. These are small but it is narwhal ivory and can be sanded and polished and made into jewelry, scrimshawed or carved. Sanding and buffing also take off the dirt and make it glassy smooth and transform it into beautiful jewelry. When our limited stock of genuine pre-1972 narwhal tusk ivory pieces is gone there will be no more…forever.
We are selling off these pieces that came from the J.L. Houston Company, a company that imported and used all types of ivory in their manufacturing for the Alaskan ivory trade from the 1950’s until the 1990’s. This narwhal ivory was imported in the 1960’s from Pond Inlet, Nunavut Canada where the narwhal are still hunted by the Inuit. They switched over to gold and silver jewelry manufacturing and finally closed their doors forever a few years ago. We will never have this material again.
