Mermaid on the Rocks


“Mermaid on the Rocks” black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by David Adams. The late Ken Fredericks used the tip of a small whale’s tooth for this gem.  Mounted on a cocobolo stand, this is from the collection of a long time client who is no longer with us. Fine detail by one of the best working today, Adams.


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.
