‘Pound Whale’s Tooth Polished’ Perfect tooth for scrimshaw, vertical or horizontal, or for elaborate carving, or just collecting. Nicely polished by someone who knew what he was doing. Just over one pound (485 grams). Not many of this size around today. From 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.
