Whale’s Tooth Carving – Lion
Whale’s tooth carving on a very large tooth by Armando Ramos. Excellent detail by Ramos on this one. Love the appearance of the impressive mane on the male lion. This if from one of our long time clients who is no longer with us and was probably created in the late 1980s. Heavy tooth weighing one pound. Not many like this 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). 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.
