Ohio - Warther Museum and Gardens

Dover Ohio - A world famous collection of wood and ivory carved models of steam trains, created by Ernest "Mooney" Warther. Mooney's first fifteen carvings were of bone and walnut. In 1923, he was able to purchase ivory. On fourteen of these, he recarved the bone pieces out of ivory. From then on, he carved walnut, ivory and ebony. The last ten years of his life he carved only in ivory.

The Warther Collection is unlike any other in the world. The Warther Museum showcases sixty-four of Ernest Warther's ebony, ivory, and walnut hand-carved masterpieces. In addition to his carvings, the collection contains his wife, Frieda's 73,000 piece button collection, Swiss-style gardens, and 5,500 piece Native American arrowhead collection.
