Color scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by S.J. Wainwright. This was done in Hawaii years and years ago and is part of a collection from someone who is no longer with us. Not familiar with the scrimshander, but it is done on a nice sized tooth. Weighs in at 3/4 of a pound. Good price for the tooth by itself.
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.
