Patriotic Sailor Boy

19TH CENTURY POLYCHROME TOOTH DEPICTING A YOUNG SAILOR BOY. A lovely little tooth engraved with a full standing portrait of a boy wearing his hat, sailor jacket, horizontally striped shirt and tie. His pants are vertically striped. At his left side he holds an American flag wrapped around a pole. In his right hand he clutches, what I believe to be, a short liberty pole and cap but it also could be a type of axe. All the engraving is of fine quality and nicely polychrome colored. Very thick tooth that measures 4 1/2" h. x 2 1/4" w. Condition very fine and has acquired a most desirable age patina throughout. This a a very good piece of antique scrimshaw.
