Basket Topper Coloring and Setting

The scrimshaw “basket topper” was made of casein plastic, the best alternative to ivory we’ve found to date, though we keep looking. The basket was purchased some time ago at basketville in Vermont, though we recently found another basket maker who creates wonderful baskets on Etsy by the name of DiannesBaskets.
