This is a beautiful, hand etched, scrimshaw warthog tusk with gorgeous artwork of two elephants, one adult and one baby in a landscape background. There are initials or a name of the artist, but I can't read it accurately. The tusk alone is about 5 inches long, and with the bottle opener part included in the measurement, it is about 6.75 inches long. The bottle opener portion is brass and it is simply fitted over the tusk and probably glued. I believe the bottle opener hardware is brass. It is a very impressive piece of genuine, south african art. You will be very pleased!
