W 1791

Polychrome Tooth

19TH CENTURY SCRIMSHAW TOOTH engraved both sides with polychrome scenes. One side with a battle scene showing American and British ships engaging in a fierce sea battle. Reverse with a large frigate, a bark and a pilot schooner sailing past a lighthouse. 6 1/4" l. x 2 1/2" w. Beautiful quality engraving throughout. Condition excellent but may have had a few small chips smoothed out of the base. I sold this tooth in my 1980 catalog #14 and it was exactly like this back then. Lovely age patina. Circa 1840. Overall a very nice looking tooth.

Sales price: $4,750.00
