Native on Sled with Dogs
“Native on Sled with Dogs” black and white on small sperm whale’s tooth signed by someone as “Aportruk” Rudimentary scrimshaw done in Seattle in the 1970s for the Alaskan tourist trade. Two main signatures were used in the factory. However, it is a sweet little tooth as is and one could always polish it off and create something nice.
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.
