This Inuit salt/pepper and toothpick holder set was carved from walrus tusk for the tourist trade, (ca 1940-50s). It stands out for its charm, workmanship and immaculate state of preservation. The relief carved and scrimshanked depictions of walruses, a seal and polar bears have the dignity and animist spirit one expects from skilled northwest coastal tribe artists. Condition: Excellent. Size: S/P 1”x 2.25", toothpick holder 2.5" x 2".
