Scrimshaw Bone Sampler Style Ruler



This delicate little ruler was made especially for the sampler stitchers and collectors. Dave made this little bone ruler in a sampler style. This is rigid bone, about 1/16 inch thick, not thin and flexible like the rulers made from piano keys. The alphabet, flowers, markings and poem are all scrimshawed in the bone.

The poem that is scrim'd on the back is also by Dave.

This ruler is currently up for auction on Ebay.com. If you would like to view this auction, please click the link below.
