Huge Humpback Rising
“Huge Humpback Rising” black and white scrimshaw on large whale’s tooth by Gretchen Lindberg. Nice composition featuring just the head of the massive humpback. Great value here considering the quality of the work and the size of the tooth. There is a check in the tooth, however. The check runs from the bottom of the tooth upwards for 2 1/4″. This is the reason the price is so low.
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.
