The details are excellent. The whaling ship "STENROFORD" is on side one and the Captain N. VINCENT is on side two.
Maritime scrimshaw, a unique American art form, has its
roots in the age of wooden ships. In the 18th Century, whaler sailing ships
harvested whale and walrus blubber for lamp oil and candle wax. The sailors on
whaling ships had a lot of spare time on board their ships. When not hunting
and processing whales, mariners occupied free time etching and making small
objects from whaling byproducts. Bones and teeth of sperm whales, baleen, and
walrus tusks were readily available on board ship. These were a highly viable
medium to produce hand tools, toys, utensils, and decorative pieces.
Sailors etched pictures and nautical scenes on bone, teeth,
and tusks using using sail sewing needles and small tools. Candle black, soot
or tobacco juice were used to bring the etched drawings into view. The earliest
authenticated pictorial scrimshaw piece appeared around 1817.
Most original nautical scrimshaw pieces were anonymous. Many
of these scrimshaw engravings were adapted from books and papers.
Scrimshaw crafted before 1973 (from sperm whale ivory,
walrus ivory etc.), during the 19th and 20th Centuries, is legal. It is
prohibited after 1973 for commercial import in the U.S. under the Marine Mammal
This historical set includes a resin replica of a 19th
Century American scrimshaw. This is a vertically designed whale tooth with a
portrait of Captain Ward Parker Vincent on the front. Above a bird holding two
harpoons under a watchful eye. Captain Vincent was a famous arctic explorer and
lecturer. His land based home was in the Historic Village of West Tisbury on
the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard off Cape Cod in Massachusetts. The
reverse side of this tooth shows a fully rigged ship called the Stenrofjord
sailing past cliffs.
