Perfect condition - Non-CITES species

Beautifully carved swordfish bill with an oceanic scene. Very impressive eye catcher.

A master craftsman has intricately carved a marine wildlife setting with (hammerhead) sharks and swimming alongside fish, in a beautiful coral setting into this large Swordfish Tusk. As you can see, the carving is of extremely high quality and has an immense amount of detail. It could be seen as a type of scrimshaw; the name given to engravings and carvings done in bone or ivory.

Dimensions:
The tusk is 83 cm long

    Dear Nick,

    Thank you for contacting me. You are saying that I do not respond to your questions. I just checked in the chat, and it seems like it is the other way around. I asked you whether you could confirm that your address is in fact correct. I never received an answer from you. I further noticed that you cancelled this sale right when I am in the midst of trying to find out why your package is being returned to us. I understand this decision. However, I do not think it is fair to have received negative feedback from you.

    La verdad es que la calidad de la pieza no se asoma a la que se ve en las fotos.
    No me ha gustado la pieza. Luego no me ha parecido nada bien que la misma pieza aparece dos veces más en subasta.
