Whaler at Work


“Whaler at Work” black and white scrimshaw on sperm whale’s tooth by Ray Peters. Attention to detail is a Peters hallmark. Note the whaler in the bowsprit as well as the two in the crow’s nest. His straight line work is amazing. Excellent opportunity to add a Peters to one’s collection.

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.
