Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Ray Peters. Vintage Peters work created in 1994 and is from the collection of one of our long time clients. First class work by one of the very best black and white nautical scrimshanders working. Note the incredible detail of the entire city in the background as well as the rigging on the whaler. Very fine work at 1994 prices.
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.
