‘Whale’s Tooth Pipe’ created by unknown artist from whale’s tooth. Interesting find from one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. It was done in the Azores as the underside of the stem reads “Lajes Terceira”. At one time someone fired it up as the marks are still there in the bowl. Not many of these around 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.
