Clippers Crossing Paths


Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by L.B. Two clippers at sea are heading in different directions, hoping to catch the better winds to arrive first at the London Tea Docks. This was done in Hawaii years and years ago and is from the collection of someone who is no longer with us. Not familiar with the scrimshander, L.B., but the work is clean and competent.

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.
