Signed on the bottom, "Mark Nawpowtuk" as well as his maker's mark - bear tracks.
Bear is 3.75" long, 1.5" across at widest and about .75" high.
NOTE: - currently California and New Jersey ban the sale of ALL ivory - so these can not be sold or shipped to anyone in either state. Should you live in one of these states and purchase this - I will not ship to you, I will refund your purchase price.....and relist this item... (And no international sales either - as many countries prohibit purchase/sale of any ivory)
