Wonderful North American humpback whale carving with scrimshaw. The sculpture is comprised of two whale teeth that have been fused together. The top tooth is carved into a whale. The bottom tooth serves as a base and is decorated with scrimshaw image featuring humpback whale mother and calf. The figure is mounted to a wooden marquetry base. The piece is in very good condition, but has a repair to the right fin. *Call our store to process order, Historic District Antiques 501-624-3370*
