In very good condition

Material: resin/polyester
Period: second half of the 20th century
Geographical origin: the Netherlands
This are four copies in the ‘Scrimshaw’ tradition.
This is a souvenir, usually made from a natural product, which sailors used to make on board during their long sea journeys.
The original ones are at the "Whale Museum".
The first depicts Napoleon with on the back the loading of cannons.
The second piece is the sailing ship "Romulus" and the piece is dedicated to "Dearest Rose", probably maker’s loved one. It is approx. 15 cm high
The third tooth is dedicated to Horatius Nelson with his ship HMS "Victory" on the back.
The fourth tooth depicts a bird of prey and bears the inscription "taken in the arctic ocean"
Combined weight of these 4 objects no less than 1500 grams.
A superb piece of decoration for each cafe in the Marina.

Flawless, will be packaged carefully and shipped.

    De gembercoupe is prompt geleverd en was heel goed verpakt. De kleine beschadigingen aan de coupe waren op de Catawiki site juist beschreven, dus beantwoordde hij aan de verwachtingen.
