Cribbage board carved from a tusk. The playing surface is divided into six rectangles by an inset piece of black material (baleen?) with four rows of six holes in each. The distal end of the tusk has been carved into the shape of a human fist. The proximal end has four holes for markers and a sliding piece to cover the hole (part b). There are four markers inside (parts c-f). On top of the board, and attached by pegs, are two seals with black eyes and nostrils facing each other. The board has two feet, carved as two bear heads with black eyes and nostrils. The bears are attached to the board by two iron screws each. There are two separate point markers (parts g-h) in addition to, and slightly smaller than, the markers inside.
