Black and white scrimshaw on whale’s tooth by Steve Willeford. Classic scene of sailor shouting down to everyone below that whales have been sighted. Everyone aboard would immediately spring into action, each man knowing his role. Willeford loves to create these types of scenes and is known as one of the very best working today. Tooth has a fairly sharp curve to it, making it more difficult to depict a full scene, but Willeford has pulled it off perfectly. Really like the remarque on the back.
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.
