Pilot Boat #5


Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Ray Peters. Vintage Peters work done in 1994 and from the collection of one of our long time clients. Generally considered one of the top black and white nautical scrimshanders working, Peters  has outdone himself with this gem. Note the detail of the crewmen aboard the pilot boat and the nice touch of people in the crow’s nests in the following vessel. Complex composition. Excellent opportunity to add a Peters to your collection at 1994 prices.

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.
