ESK6 - Narrow Handled Bone Scoop. 

This narrow scoop, made from marine mammal bone, appears to have been shaped from a large seal or Walrus rib.  Overall it is 8 inches long, with a trough-like scoop end that is 4 inches long and 1 inch wide.  The narrower 4 inch end terminates with a drilled hole fitted with a loop of sinew or cotton twine, surely made for hanging, perhaps from a parka.  The scoop is of a form that could be used as a marrow scoop (Inuit and Eskimo people prized marrow bone), or simply a spoon.  Not made for tourist trade, this was a working Arctic tool.  Fine.
