Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by unknown scrimshander. Very nice composition on this one. Not sure who the artist was as this is from one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. Probably done in the early 1980s. The weight of the tooth: 330 grams.
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.
