Humpback whale carving on huge whale’s tooth by Armando Ramos. The bottom of this tooth has been carved in order that the tooth will stand upright. Very creative work of sounding humpback by Ramos. Do not have any information about the artist, but this was probably done in the late 1980s. It is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. Tooth weighs an impressive 1 pound, six ounces. Not many of this size around today. Excellent opportunity to add an impressive work to your collection at 1980s price. The tooth alone would be more than the sale price today.
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).

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.
