Woolly Mammoth Tusk Core Piece
Finished & Polished !
10,000 to 30,000 years old !
This auction is for a Wooley Mammoth Ivory Core piece that was Professionally Cleaned , Sanded and Polished for a Display .
Item was pack away hap-hazardly 30 years ago and has light surface starches.
I purchased this 35 + Years ago and was going to use as handle scale inlays for a number of knives and inlays but That time has passed and I’m listing them as they are no longer needed.
Piece is :
Weight: 5.2 oz.
Length: 8-1/8” down the center line
Width : 2-1/16 X 1-5/8” ( oval at the base )
Hole goes down 3-5/16” deep = 5” Solid Ivory to the tip !
Tip : 3/16”
Ivory Tusk Center Core Piece of various thickness as it tapers and dose have cracks from age on sides but the main faces front and back still have
A nice useable surface for project material = See Pictures
Still could be used for inlays , carvings and Jewelry , Knife scales , Pistol Grips.
This piece does have some nice grain on it but also a starch as well so it will need final finishing but looks great as a Natural Display !
I put a ruler in the pic.s for size but do contact me if your needing more
Specific size information.
Core is solid Very Nice outer color not bark on outer surface from mineral deposits .
This is a nice Ivory Color Piece but still slightly retains that Elephant Smell as well.
( if you’ve ever been to a circus or zoo where you can smell the Elephants )
Would make many nice Scrimshaw Piece , Inlays for knife or Pistol handles ,Jewelry Necklace , Carving or just a Neat Natural Display !
I’m Just getting old and need to let another enjoy these Sweet items.
