Cutting In (Lower Jaw)


Color scrimshaw on whale ivory by Matt Stothart. Nicely done cutting in depiction of whalers working on the lower jaw of a sperm whale. The back side has a description of the process from Moby Dick. Handsome stand by Fredericks.

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.
