Mystery Artist 35 – From Alaska

“This is a scrimshaw bracelet (pewter) that was a gift to me in 1975. It is from a friend in Alaska who said that he was told it was an antique when he bought it. It is about 2″ in diameter. The initials in the lower left look like ‘mq’ but the ‘q’ might be something else. Can you tell me anything about this piece? I can take more pics if you need them.

Miriam”

Hoping to get a closeup of the initials to better identify it.  We’d love it if anyone knowing of the artist or more history of the piece would respond.Pewter and ivory bracelet of a ship in full sail
