‘Ships on Whale’s Tooth’ black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by GT. Interesting color on this tooth. Dark on the surface, but when polished the surface is quite nice. Not familiar with the artist. 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.
