Walrus “Mask” Skull with Tusks 01
This nicely patinaed nose plate has 21” tusks with 5 1/2” base circumference. Measuring 27” tall overall and hangs on a wire. With handsome original native Alaskan artwork of a walrus on one side and a standing polar bear on the other. This is legal to sell because it is pre 1972 AND it is Alaskan native artwork. This is a real nice example. WMKC121 (Curtis) - $2,000.00
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”.
