Barbara Johnson Scrimshaw Collection
“Barbara Johnson Scrimshaw Collection” rare scrimshaw done in sepia tones on huge whale’s tooth by an unknown artist. This is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. There is a small oval sticker attached to the tooth which attests to the fact that it was indeed from her esteemed collection. A rare find.
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 Florida. It can be purchased directly from our website and shipped only to an address within the state of Florida. If one has a relative, trusted friend or business associate within the state of Florida, we can ship to that specified address in order to comply with Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions, email or call us.
