14317 Antique Scrimshaw Tooth Engraved in Strong Pinprick

Product Description

This charming mid 19th century scrimshaw tooth depicts a lady on the obverse attired in a full length elaborate theatrical costume. The reverse side shows a variety of potted plants resting on a multi-tiered Victorian plant stand. The anonymous scrimshander chose these very intricate subjects to illustrate his skill using the pinprick technique of engraving to the extreme. The tooth measures 6 1/4in. x 2 3/4 in. with a light mellow patina. Some slight chipping to the cut base and two small hairline cracks running from the base up about one inch.     SORRY, SOLD
