Hunting Dog Fossil Ivory Scrimshaw Belt Buckle, in Leather and Brass , Signed
Very old and handsome Fossil Ivory with a Retriever type Dog carrying a bird done in excellent scrimshaw. The scrimshaw piece is set in leather and mounted in a hand casted solid brass buckle. There is an initial signature on the scrimshaw that looks like "PA",
The ivory it's self is yellowed as one would expect for a fossil. The brass is dark with patina. It measures 3" x 1.75" and is heavy for the size.
