Black and white scrimshaw on whale ivory by Gerry Dupont. A sad end for the whaler, Antarctic. Award winning scrimshander, Dupont, has captured the bleak setting perfectly, adding to the overall mood of the piece, not an easy task for any artist, much less for a scrimshander. Bravo.
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.
