Ram’s head carving on whale’s tooth by Armando Ramos. Note how the tip of this large tooth has been worn down, indicating that it was from a large bull sperm whale. Ramos probably created this in the early 1980s. It is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. Excellent opportunity to add a beautiful carving 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.
