Departing Clipper Ship
Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Larry Vienneau. Nicely done scrimshaw in the antique style of the whalers, with borders at top and bottom of a whale’s tooth. This is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. It was probably done in the mid 1970s to mid 1980s on the East Coast. Artist is no longer doing any scrimshaw, so this would be a fine addition to any collection.
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.
