South Seas Harbor Scene
“South Seas Harbor Scene” black and white scrimshaw on sperm whale’s tooth by the late Peter Kinney. Moored vessel has arrived in a secure harbor. Local residents are in their canoes. Kinney always had a strong, distinctive style as can be seen here. Classic stand by the late Ken Fredericks, this is from the collection of one of our clients who, like Kinney and Fredericks, is no longer with us. Trifecta.
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.
