Vintage Walrus Skull/Mask with Tusks WM-11


Walrus Skull/Mask with Tusks (aka the nose plate or the front part of the skull without the elongated cranium).  This beautifully scrimshawed/hand engraved vintage specimen has a very handsome walrus portrait and landscape below on one tusk and the other tusk has an equally handsome polar bear portrait and landscape.  These tusks have a rich yellowed patina the mask and was acquired in the 1960's.  The tusks are 19" long, the mask is 28" top to tips and it weighs 12 pounds, the tusks are removable it comes ready to hang.  This is an exceptional art and natural history specimen with free shipping and insurance.

All the walrus masks we sell are from the 1900’s and are being reintroduced into the market, they are decades old, always purchased in the lower 48 from previous owners. We do not buy any of these in Alaska where they are still being hunted for food. Some of ours are pre 1972 and others have native Alaskan scrimshaw, both are legal to buy and sell. No one is hunting walrus to supply us with these; they are all “recycled”.
