Cribbage Game Board

Physical description

Cribbage board carved from a narwhal tusk. The playing surface is divided into six rectangles by incised lines with four rows of six holes. The distal end is carved into a polar bear's head with black eyes and open mouth. The proximal end has a slit for the markers. The slit is closed by a moving rectangle in the form of a seal with black eyes. On top of the playing surface is a walrus head (missing tusks) attached by peg. There are two feet attached to the body by pegs. Four pieces are in the marker hole: one of the tusks for the walrus, two markers, and a marker in the form of a fish with an iron peg. Gadroon decoration lines each side of the cribbage board.
