This faux whale's tooth with a scrimshaw design of the ship "The Brandenberg" measures 5 1/2" tall (14cm) and approximately 2 1/4" (5.5 cm) in diameter. On the one side is the image of the ship The Brandenberg, a sailing ship reminiscent of the 19th century. The other side depicts the image of a horse and lion on either side of a coat of arms and presumably the British Royal Crown atop of it all. Tooth has a good heavy feel to it, but not quite the weight of the real thing.
