Pre 1972 WALRUS SKULL MASK with ivory tusks

Description

This handsome specimen has 19” of exposed tusks (with another 6” in cased in the skull socket) and 7-1/2” tusk circumference at the point where the tusk goes into the bone. It has 6 of the palate teeth and weighs 18 pounds, this is a very nice example. WMCC161 (Carey) - $2,200.00

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”.
