Decent condition, has had reparations • Non-CITES species

Beautifully carved swordfish bill with a ocean floor motif. Very impressive eye catcher.

A master craftsman has intricately carved Blue Whales, Beluga's, Sea Lions and Dolphins in an oceanic setting into this large Swordfish Tusk. The carving is of very high quality and has a lot of detail. Could be seen as a type of scrimshaw.

Dimensions:
The tusk is 88cm long.

SHIPPING:
- The swordfish tusk will be packaged carefully and sent registered with a Track & Trace code via DHL Parcel.
