Lovely Signed Scrimshaw Floral Etching on Dark Oval Horn Vintage Brooch Pin.
Signed by the talented artist that etched it in a lovely Oval polished horn. It is signed what looks like Apodrok but difficult to read it clearly.
The etching is very fine and tropical flowers beautifully done. A small piece of artwork that you can wear.
Scrimshaw is the name given to scrollwork, engravings, and carvings done in bone, horn or ivory.
Widely accepted as one of the most important truly American folk arts, a variety of modern artists have transformed scrimshaw from an art with a primarily nautical focus to a widely diverse artistic expression.
This Beauty is quite unusual and lovely to behold.
The pin has a lucite backing and is firmly secured to the piece.
