Fiona Kenny Antiques
A nicely carved green soapstone native Canadian tribal carving in the form of a polar bear next to a wall/rock. The wall part has two holes carved in the top, we assume for use as a desk pen stand. This 3-3/4" wide, 2-5/8" tall and 4" deep sculpture has nice colour and stone figuring, and it has an applied tape label stating: MADE BY ELIGAH ALLISPPI BOUGHT AT MOOSONEE IN AUG 1981. Moosonee is located in Northern Ontario, just a few miles from James Bay. The piece itself is otherwise unsigned and it is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks, losses, damage or repairs other than some traces from removed stickers on the top (easily buffed). There is a fine surface stress crack in the stone visible around the bear's neck, but it is original to the stone, not damage. Surface shipping starts at $24 - it is heavy (to the US - other spots may vary) - insurance and tracking included in shipping. Items paid by credit card shipped to a confirmed address only.
