Fashioned from a lovely dolomite specimen, comes this low to the ground Badger with turquoise inlaid eyes. Sgraffito etching adds nice fur detailing. And best of all, a gorgeous inlaid mosaic of pipestone, jet, mother-of-pearl and turquoise attracts the eye. About 3 1/8" long, 1 1/2" wide and 1/2" tall.
