Color scrimshaw on a whale’s tooth by Yoko Gaydos. Stunning piece by a master scrimshander known for her colorful works of ships. The attention to detail is amazing, from the delicate rigging and sails, to the boat launch on the starboard side. This is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. Nice size tooth which weighs around 8 ounces. Great opportunity to get a classic Gaydos whale tooth.
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.
