A bone swordfish (Xiphias gladius) rostrum seated upon a wooden mount. (non CITES)


The bone rostrum is hand carved to one side depicting numerous whales of different species the reverse is plain so it can be displayed as a specimen if desired.


The base of the rostrum has been filled and capped to preserve the hollow end of the bill and prevent chipping, this is not damage.


The bone rostrum has achieved a deep orange patina where the natural oils in the bill have dried giving it antique look and feel to it and making this a great decorative item for a nautical inspired theme.
