Here’s Looking at You
Black and white scrimshaw on pre-ban African ivory tip by David Adams. Fascinating young lady has an inquiring look on her face. As usual, this talented scrimshander has done another outstanding job. We don’t get many of these smaller tips, but whenever we do, the nudes seem to fit. Be sure to view the detail shots. The ivory itself is 3.5″ high, mounted on a well made stand of wenge. Great price for such fine work.
This scrimshaw is done on pre-ban African ivory. Since the passage of the CITIES Treaty in 1973, there has been no African ivory brought into the U.S. However, ivory that was in the U.S. prior to 1973 can be legally sold and shipped within the U.S. However, new legislation taking effect in 2016 restricts pre-ban African Ivory from being shipped interstate. It can only legally be shipped intrastate, (within the state). All of our pre-ban 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 the new Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded it to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions email or call us.
