‘Awesome Dragon’ black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by David Pudelwitts. This was done in the 1970s and is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. The scrimshander is no longer doing scrimshaw as well. The stand has disappeared, but the brass post is still intact. Nice line work by the scrimshander.
This scrimshaw is done on a sperm whale’s tooth. Federal legislation bans the interstate shipment of whale ivory. It can only be shipped intrastate (within the state). All of our whale ivory is located with our associate in the state of Ohio. It can be purchased directly from our website and shipped only to an address within the state of Ohio. If one has a relative, trusted friend or business associate within the state of Ohio, we can ship to that specified address in order to comply with Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded it to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions, email or call us.
