Women Boarding a Ferry
“Women Boarding a Ferry” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by Martin Bandy. Two well dressed Victorian women prepare to board a ferry as two young lads pass their time on the stone covered dockside. Others eye the handsome women as the ferryman prepares the boat. One wonders where they are going. Every picture tells a story. Bandy, who passed away years ago, was considered one of the very best scrimshanders of his era. His composition and eye for detail were unmatched. His work seldom becomes available as most collectors covet their pieces are are reticent to part with them. Bandy created this outstanding work in 1978 and it is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. The stand had been repaired at some time. Rare opportunity to acquire a Bandy work at a bargain price.
