Product Overview

This wonderful two person and our two team cribbage boards is a beautiful accent piece for your home or take it on the road for use as a travel cribbage board.  With the magnet holding the center piece and pegs in place it is a stunning travel cribbage board. 

This is a stunning originally hand etched Claddagh Eco - Ivory Scrimshaw Cribbage Board!  The Claddagh Ring design is a traditional Irish design that represents love, loyalty, and friendship! The hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty. The center circular piece has a magnet holding it in place.  Pushing on the base of the piece pops the Large round off the board, where the pegs are stored.  All cribbage boards come with 3 red and 3 white/yellow wooden pegs. 

The cribbage board itself is made for two players or teams.  The board has a native geometric design that was originally hand etched.  The large round piece has a magnet on the back to keep it secured to the board and store the pegs.  The pegs are made of wood.  This is part of the Save the Elephant Collection and was originally hand etched by Linda Layden.  The SKU is NC 53 - 178.

The Cribbage Board is 8.50" x 3.46" x 0.46".  It weighs 11.28 oz.

Linda Layden developed an interest in Scrimshaw after viewing a collection belonging to journalist Roger Hawthorne, who traveled with Admiral Bird on an expedition to Antarctica.  In 1971, after becoming interested in the whaling era and the natural materials used, she began making scrimshaw items for friends and family.  She specialized in wildlife and scenic motifs.  Soon after, her work was being commissioned by art lovers and collectors throughout the world.  

The resin scrimshaw piece is hand etched on corian, which cuts like ivory.  We then make a mold of the original piece and do an open cast pour of our resin mixture.  The pieces are removed from the mold and sanded and inked to be placed on their size appropriate findings.  

We believe that serving nature is one of the commissions that we as humans have been given here on earth.  We wish to lend our resources to those charged with protecting elephants from poaching for their ivory. 

On a monthly basis we donate to organizations whose purpose to protect the elephants and other species throughout the planet.  We focus our donations on organizations that put the money to good use and have a low overhead. With the majority of incoming funds going back to saving the elephants!
