7c: Scrimshaw and such.

  • Sale
  • Regular price $75.00


I had an Uncle who walk over much of Wisconsin as an field archeologist looking for the stone artifacts left by its native peoples.  One of the most common tools that he would find were engravers used to decorate the items of daily life.  Scrimshaw is an extension of that art form, with fine tool lines incised into bone or ivory then darkened with soot or ink.   I have added this detail to my nets, mostly because it was fun and delighted my eye.    I like to think that our distant grand fathers and mothers enjoyed this enhancement in the same way.   Starting at $75.
