WELCOME TO CARYLES COLLECTIBLE CORNER. Vintage creation, circa 1960s. Highly collectible Eskimo artisan work of art, a panel of 9 scenes of story-telling tribal life, etched into Baleen whale ovals, with. Colored bone beads to separate them, all on a stretchy cord. Hunting, fishing, panning, animals of the region, daily life activities: an amazing panorama of Eskimo life. We have tried to take pictures of all the panels, in different angles so you can see the awesome hand scrimshaw carvings of the artist. Signed Apodruk on a piece that shows a hut. Please scroll through all our pictures to see the individual art work. I was recently told by an Ebayer here this could be “umingmak” (Inuit muskox) horn, as Baleen bone is usually darker. Each oval is 1-1/4 x 3/4. The cord will stretch to fit almost any size wrist, relaxed it is 8-1/4 around. In very good vintage condition, the only teeny nits I see is some chipping along the edge of a couple of the panels (see our pictures). On the back, note that one of the panels has a deep groove in it. That is where the stretchy cords are tied so if you ever need to replace the cords it will be easy. A fabulous gift for someone special. PLEASE READ: The Rules of my Auctions. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS: There may be a detail that we have not described but is important to you.
