Carved Vegetable Ivory Owl on Moon Button

This is a button which I designed and carved two different versions of, the first carved from bone.  This, the second of the two, is carved from a nice light tan vegetable ivory.  The owl has eyes made of inlaid bakelite and its beak and feet/talons are carved from orange helmet shell.  The button measures a hair under 1 1/4 inches making it an NBS medium, and it has a self shank carved onto the back where I've also inscribed my signature and the date.

Price....  $200.00

       

Carved Vegetable Ivory Mechanical Dice Button

This great little button is one that I carved from vegetable ivory with a clear bakelite/catalin top and inside are four loose bone dice (which I also carved).  The clear bakelite/catalin top is carved to be convex (concave inside of course) to allow the dice to rattle around smoothly.  Due to the concave nature of the inside of the clear piece, the dice appear a bit skewed when they are close to the edges of the button.  They "rattle around" nicely and make for lots of fun...  The button measures a bit less than 1 1/4 inches in diameter, ha a self shank carved onto the back and my signature and the date inscribed there as well.

Price....  $185.00
 

Carved Antler Lizard Button

This button is a nice little lizard which I've carefully carved from White Tail Deer Antler.  The base of the button is carved and smoothed to appear as a rounded rock which the lizard is resting on.  The lizard's eyes are inlaid black bakelite.  The button measures a bit under 1 1/4 inches and has a self shank carved onto the bottom where I've also inscribed my signature and the date.

Price....   $150.00
 

Carved & Painted Antler Blue Heron Button

This is a dandy realistic button that I've carved from White Tail Deer antler.  The subject is a pretty Great Blue Heron wading between a log and Marsh grasses.  The heron has a little fish grasped in its beak.  The entire button is painted carefully with enamel paints, has a self shank carved onto the back and my signature and the date inscribed there as well.

Price....   $175.00

Fossil Walrus Ivory Seahorse Button

This a great little seahorse button that I've carved from a lovely fossil walrus ivory.  The finely detailed little seahorse also has a black bakelite eye, it measures a hair under 1 1/4 inches and has a self shank carved onto the back where I've inscribed my signature and the date.

Price....  $125.00
 

Carved Vegetable Ivory Piggie Head Button

Here is a very nice realistic Pig's head button that I've carved from a wonderful tan colored Vegetable Ivory.  The carving has just a touch of whimsey with the Pig's slight grin.  The eye is inlaid black bakelite.  The button measures a hair under 1 1/4 inches, has a self shank carved onto the back and my signature and the date inscribed.

Price....   $175.00
 

Carved Fossil Walrus Tooth & Bakelite Lizard & Beetles Button

This is a handsome little button that I've carved from a fossil walrus tooth.  The button features a nice detailed little lizard surrounded by brown and black bakelite beetles.  The lizard's eyes are also bakelite and I added just a bit of brown dye to the lizard prior to polishing the button.  The button measures right at 1 3/4 inches in length, has a self shank carved onto the back and my signature and the date inscribed there as well.

Price....  $150.00
