Flying Cloud at Sea
Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Matt Stothart. Aptly named, Flying Cloud, is depicted on the open sea. This is from the collection of someone who is no longer with us. This was done for the Hawaii market years and years ago by Matt Stothart. Rare to see his work at this price today on whale ivory. Nicely done, indeed.
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.
