Fossil mammoth ivory set huge 8.4 ounces
Fossil mammoth ivory set, 8.4 ounces. 5 ¼ x over 2 x ¼ inches. A very large set could be pistol grips, sword bowie large project or cut into more then one set. Nice colors and slight alligator pattern, but not running deep. So a window could be sanded for scrimshaw or cameo type carving. Slight filler in the back to keep flat and control slight delamination and dips. Unusual to get this kind of flat width off a curved tusk, and means it came off a 12 ft long tusk. From interior Alaska, form material I found myself.
