Bear in Walnut Shell

649.00

This miniature scene features a sterling silver bear taking pride in his recent catch, a tiny copper Chinook Salmon, freshly caught from the depicted stream and rocky surroundings, with a lush timberline and clear night sky serving as backdrop. A modern masterwork by the Portland artist "Marrs," this piece was meticulously created using the ancient metalworking tradition to "chase and repousse" the fine details in copper by alternatively hammering details in from the front and reverse using fine jewelers tools and methods. Truly a one-of-a-kind.
