Carved Whale Ivory Whale
“Carved Whale Ivory Whale created by the late Bay Area carver, Albin Geiger. The artist worked as a city administrator here in the Bay Area, but his passion was carving ivory. Completely self taught, he created stunning pieces that are prized by collectors today. We would often trade raw ivory for his carvings which quickly found their way into collections throughout the world. This is from one of our long time collectors who is no longer with us. Great piece, great price.
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.
