“Unicorn Scrimshaw” black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Ray Peters. Well known scrimshander, Peters, created this little gem in 1973, early in his career. Looking at this one can easily imagine Peters with big hair and bell bottoms. It is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. No stand, but it does stand vertically. Excellent opportunity to add an early Peters to your collection at a great price.
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 to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions, email or call us.
