Carved whale’s tooth (seahorse) by Armando Ramos. Great work on this very large whale’s tooth by Ramos. This is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. We do not have any information about the talented carver, Ramos. The tooth itself weighs 15 ounces and is in pristine condition. Not many of this size around anymore. This was probably created in the late 1980s.
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.
