Polished Raw Whale’s Tooth


“Polished Raw Whale’s Tooth” antique whale’s tooth with marvelous patina has been polished on one side, ready for scrimshaw or carving. Note the four tiny holes drilled into the base of the tooth, perhaps in anticipation of a stand?  Tooth itself in excellent condition with no checks or cracks. This is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us.

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.
