MJ 106

Tooth with Lady

METICULOUSLY ENGRAVED SCRIMSHAW TOOTH with a portrait of a fashionably dressed female. Over the years I've had a few other examples by this artist including one in my own collection that is illustrated on page 57 in Flayderman's "Scrimshaw and Scrimshanders". Very distinctive style of work using a combination of pin prick and engraved lines to form the image. This one also has a Union Jack symbol that the artist puts on the reverse of some his work.  Nice heavy tooth that measures 7" l. x 2 3/4" w. Condition excellent. Great age color throughout. I originally sold this tooth about 35 years ago. 

Sales price: $1,925.00
