“Safe Harbor” black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Ray Peters. This detailed scrimshaw was created by Peters in 1974, early in his career. One seldom sees work of this time become available today. Easy to discern the raw talent of this well known scrimshander at an early year. From the collection of a client who is no longer with us. Nice work, great price.
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 Florida. It can be purchased directly from our website and shipped only to an address within the state of Florida. If one has a relative, trusted friend or business associate within the state of Florida, 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.
