Full Rigged Clipper
“Full Rigged Clipper” black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Frank Barcelos. Clipper is making time, all sails full. Done on an old tooth judging from the worn, rounded top. Excellent work by Barcelos at a very reasonable price. From the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us.
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 to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions, email or call us.
