Scrimshaw is a form of ancient maritime folk art.  Original museum pieces are dated in the early eighteen hundreds, but the art may go as far back as whaling history itself to 100 or 200 AD.  Whalers believed in using every part of the animal they hunted.  The meet for food, the oil for light and the baleen for many purposes.   It was only natural then to find a use fir the teeth and other small bones of the jaw, therefore, Scrimshaw was born.
In order to preserve this exquisite art form, without any adverse environmental consequences, Nantucketer.com offers our hand cast resin reproduction ivorine product.   Each piece is individually inked, antiqued and finished by hand in the United States.
