Carved Fossil Walrus Ivory Fish Button

Here is a great little fishy button that I've carved from fossil walrus ivory.  The fish is carved mainly from the central section of the tusk, commonly referred to as tapioca ivory because of the mottled crystalline appearance.  The brown sections on the fins is the outer portion of the ivory which has taken on color from minerals in the ground where it was deposited.  The fish is carved in detail and has inlaid eyes made from bakelite/catalin.  The button measures right at 1 3/8 inches at the longest measurement, it has a self shank carved onto the back and my signature and the date inscribed there as well.


Vegetable Ivory Scarab Beetle Button

Carved from vegetable ivory from the Tagua nut, this realistic little scarab beetle button has black Bakelite eyes and measures 1 1/8 inches. I carved a self shank onto the back and inscribed my signature and the date.


Carved Fossil Ivory Zebra Button

This handsome zebra button is one that I've carved from fossil walrus ivory. All of the zebra's black markings (stripes, mane, hooves, eyes & etc) are inscribed and then painted with high quality black enamel paint. I carved a self shank onto the back and inscribed my signature and the date. The button measures just under 1 1/4 inches.
