Scrimshaw Cutlery Tray with Drawer and Inlay
Mahogany, walnut, poplar, baleen and mixed woods inlays, ivory and silver
A fine and outstanding example…the arched tray divider with shaped ends is pierced with heart shape finger-hold and is raised above the canted case featuring an amazing scalloped top-edge. The front, drawer face and sides are ornamented with inlayed panels. The dovetailed drawer conforms to case and is inlayed with a trailing vine, leaves and berries centered within baleen and burl line inlay; carved ivory knobs and a shield device inlayed with a sheet silver "K". The case rests on a projecting base with quarter-round molded edge featuring baleen string-inlay. Ex Barbara Johnson Collection
