Whales’ tooth carving of a goldfish by Armando Ramos. This is done on a very large, pristine tooth. This carving is from one of our long time clients who is no longer with us and it was probably done in the mid 1980s by Ramos. Do not have any information about the carver, however. The tooth is highly polished on the back side as well. You can feel each individual scale on the goldfish. First class work at 1980s 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.
