|Picasso made wonderful toys for his children out of found objects; this one by a Native American probably would have delighted him. Fashioned from the jawbone of a caribou and baleen (whalebone}, it is delightfully sculptural. Some wear to the lower points, naturally, but no cracks or breaks. Probably around 1900-1920. Approximately 14-1/2 inches long by 4-1/2 inches wide in largest point.|
