|Scrimshaw was the fine art of 19th century whalers.
While on voyages lasting upwards of two or three
years, the sailors would pass the time carving artistic
designs and pictures into pieces of whalebone. They
would then polish their creations and bring them home
as gifts for loved ones.
Our scrimshaw is produced in much the same manner
by a local craftsman. His original design is then
transferred to a man-made material especially created
to give the same look, feel, and coloration of the
original whalebone art. In this manner, no whales, or
any other animal, is harmed in the process, (whaling is
now illegal in the U. S., and much of the world, as well).
The detail on our pieces is outstanding! Click on a
