Shipping Lanes


Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by L.B. This was done in Hawaii years and years ago and is from someone who is no longer with us. Two sailing ships are now in the shipping lane, waiting for the arrival of the pilot vessel which will guide them into San Francisco Bay. Not familiar with the scrimshander, L.B., but the work is clean and competent.

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.
