Lovely Scrimshaw Ivory Handled Alaskan Eskimo Dog Sled Cake/Pie Server

Presented is a handsome ivory handled scrimshaw cake or pie server. The handle is made from walrus and scrimshawed with an Alaskan Eskimo or Inuit man and his dog sled. The carving is completely hand done in marvelous detail. The handle has been fitted with a stainless steel cake or pie serving blade. This is clearly not original since the blade is marked, “Stainless Steel, Sterling Silver Handle”, but it works very well.

The handle is signed “Nuguruk”. This company was from Seattle, Washington. This piece probably dates to the 1960s.

Aside from the replaced blade which is inconsequential, the condition is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, no splits, no breaks, and no repairs.

The cake or pie server is 9 3/8 inches long.
