1659190838Code 627 Great ScrimshawGreat Scrimshaw of an engraved walrus tooth, of excellent workmanship from the first half of the 19th century, length 41.5 cm, depicting a complex whaling scene: 3 brigantines, 5 rowing boats with 6 whalers on each while trying to harpoon two whales, on the sides a basket with harpoons and two whales. The back of the tooth bears the following incision PECHE DE LA BALENE. Very good condition. Measures 41.5X7.2X6.9 cm, inches 16.3 x 2.9x2.7

The word "scrimshaw" refers to an art form and to the different products of this art, born on board American whaling ships between 1745 and 1759 as a way to occupy time during the long leisure hours on board; this form of craft developed through a process of engraving and carving whale bones and teeth, making objects both usable in everyday life and ornamental, which are usually made as souvenirs for family members.

The object can only be sold in the EU (being a worked antique object made before 1947 it can be sold within EU without CITES certificate).
