Come Hither Look


“Come Hither Look” black and white scrimshaw on pre-ban African Ivory by David Adams. Done several years ago, this Adams masterpiece is stunning, to say the least. Perfect contrast with the subtle black tones and the bright ivory. The box in itself is another work of art. Note the hinges on the rear as well as the knob of ancient walrus tusk ivory and the bubinga wood base. Everything completely handmade and of first rate quality. From a private collection.


This scrimshaw is done on pre-ban African ivory. Since the passage of the CITIES Treaty in 1973, there has been no African ivory brought into the U.S. However, ivory that was in the U.S. prior to 1973 can be legally sold and shipped within the U.S. However, new legislation taking effect in 2016 restricts pre-ban African Ivory from being shipped interstate. It can only legally be shipped intrastate, (within the state). All of our pre-ban 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 the new Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded it to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions email or call us.
