Whale’s Tooth Carving – Leopard
Armando Ramos carving on a very large whale’s tooth of a stalking leopard. This one almost seems ready to leap off of the huge whale’s tooth. Very strong work by Ramos, probably created in the late 1980s. It is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. This is an extremely large whale’s tooth that weights 1 pound 3 ounces! Not many this size around today. Excellent opportunity to get a first rate piece 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.
