smallest (upper left) is 6" long; largest (bottom two) are 12" in length. First comes from Hudson Bay; the two-hole baidarka (second) is Alaskan; the origin of last two is not yet certain. All would likely date 1900-1950.

    You are lucky!

    I have collected such, especially Hudson Bay!

    The first one is what material?

    all are ivory; first two are likely walrus tusk.

    Any others?
