Mid-19th Century English Horn Scrimshaw Beaker



Mid-19th century Scrimshaw beaker A rare example of a mid-19th century scrimshaw beaker. Detailed with a heart shaped silver initial MC, covered with a fox hunting country scene which includes men on horseback, a pack of dogs, fox, cottages, trees, shrubs, and landscape with country fences. A leaf motif completes this wonderful piece of folk art at the base and rim. Natural age is present across this item but a lovely example, nevertheless. Size in inches or ark: H 4” x W 3” x D 3” Origin: English Period: mid-19th century Material: Horn Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form. Wear is present through fading of the scrimshaw carved detail. The beaker as a natural aged decay at the base (photographed). With a lovely deep patina across all its surface. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas of this piece therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
