Very good condition

Scrimshaw engraved in a sperm whale tooth representing a bourgeois couple. Naïve engravings probably realised by a sailor aboard a whaler in the nineteenth century by using a mending needle. Marvellous patina.
Height: 16cm

    l'articolo non e' avorio d'elefante...il venditore dice essere avorio marino , ma anche quello porta striature che invece sono totalmente inesistenti nell'oggetto.

    Non era stata data evidenza che l'oggetto acquistato era composto da più pezzi (assemblato). Se avessi avuto questa informazione non avrei fatto alcuna offerta.
