Featured in this lot is an Alaskan Eskimo Inuit mounted Scrimshawed walrus skull and tusk. The walrus skull features a wonderfully and professionally mounted design that shows impressive lengths that extend up into the skull approximately 5". The tusks are wonderfully Scrimshawed with floral decorations that are colored with green vines and red flowers. The shield the walrus tusk is mounted on is covered in stretched Alaskan seal hide with light brown to dark brown coloration in distinct markings throughout the hide. The condition of this walrus skull is good with some patina and additional coloring adorning the tusks along with natural fissures adorning the tusks. It is also missing some teeth, but otherwise it shows good overall condition. The measurements of this mounted walrus skull are 31" x 10 3/4" x 5 1/2".*
