is a great piece of Scrimshaw Ivory carving of a whale on an ivory base. Length of the whale is 3", width is about 3/4" at the center, ivory base has a diameter of 1 1/4". The whale is attached to the base with a round piece of wood. I purchased this in Alaska in the 1980's. The blow holes on the whale are marked in black as are his eyes and mouth. A beautiful piece of scrimshaw to enjoy for years to come.
