Ivory model of a snow knife, awl, comb

Ivory model of a comb, of an awl, creaser, or marlin spike used in working skins for clothes and boots or sinews for bows, and walrus ivory model of a snow knife or panna. These items are part of a collection of ethnographic material made by Admiral Sir George Back (1796-1878), and would have been made for sale to Europeans. Back met Inuit anxious to trade ivory carvings in Hudson Strait on 12 August 1819 and 5 August 1836 (there was a tradition of ivory carving established on Baffin Island).
