Seller: orionsgirl60 (503) 100%, Location: Inman, South Carolina, Ships to: US, Item: 112641564875 Many years ago my husband purchased some items of scrimshaw from a dealer. He purchased toothpicks, a box, and a scrimshaw piece. The other pieces are for sale on eBay also.The box is made of a dark wood, with a scrimshaw carving on the cover. The piece measures 4 inches long by 2-1/8 inches high by 2-3/4 inches deep. The lid opens up to a compartment that measures 3 inches wide by 2 inches deep by 1-3/4 inches high. The carving is of a tern/seagull with a fish in its talons flying over the ocean. In the background is a ship and a lighthouse on the shore. The ship is flying two sails one plain and one striped, and shows people up on deck. On the land there is a fence, a flag flying, a home and a lighthouse which is painted in stripes also. There are other birds flying and clouds in the sky. On the top of the carving is a five pointed star with half of each point painted in light and dark. Over all the scrimshaw is a banner that says “Off New England’s Shore”. On the left side of the picture is an oblong circle with the initials DP in it. I have seen those initials on one other piece of scrimshaw, a whale’s tooth, which we have already sold. This box has been in a safe for years and comes from a pet and smoke free home.
