Corrington Alaskan Ivory
Located in the heart of Skagway on Broadway at 5th Avenue and home to the "free" History of Alaska museum. The Corringtons have been in business at this location for 38 years. Dennis Corrington and his daughter Sherry make trading trips each year to Alaskan Eskimo villages to bring you the largest selection of Native Alaskan art direct from the artists to provide the most attractive prices in Southeast Alaska. Corringtons features Native artistic creations using materials of Alaska: fresh and fossilized walrus ivory, soapstone, jade, mammoth bone and tusk, whale & walrus bone as well as hand-crafted ulus, wooden bowls and totemic art. Also featured is the largest selection of naturally shed moose antler sculptures by Alaskan artist Bob Merry, an exclusive selection of hand-woven baleen baskets by Alaskan artist Cheri Ables, hand crafted Totem Poles from southeast Alaska by award winning artists Teddie and Pat Moore and collectibles from Lladro and Swarovski.
Leave some free time to enjoy the CORRINGTON MUSEUM OF ALASKAN HISTORY depicting the history of alaska on 32 scrimshawed walrus tusks. The museum is free and also is the home of the world's largest baleen basket.
