Replica Sperm Whale Teeth Scrimshaw plantation motifs - n/a - 14×6×6 cm - 2
1950 - Dutch East Indies

Geographic origin: Dutch East Indies.
Made after the tradition of a "Scrimshaw".
In earlier days this was made from a natural product, which sailors used to make on board during their long sea journeys.
Both teeth show images from a port in a tropical environment so possibly the colonial era. Beautifully detailed.
The dimensions of the teeth are approx. 14 x 6 cm and together they weigh 670 grams.
Beautiful conversation pieces.

The pieces are flawless and will be packaged carefully and shipped with T&T.
