This website is a group effort by COLLECTORS, for collectors. This site will provide a platform for collectors to share images of antique, vintage & Contemporary SCRIMSHAW on old WHALE TEETH, walrus tusks, mastodon, mammoth & elephant ivories, for all to enjoy and learn.
We will continually add articles to educate the novice and the expert to assist in discerning between the qualities of ivory, scrimswork styles, ivory age, etc. as well as various "How To" articles. This website offers collectors of scrimshaw & whaling artifacts, a way to inter-act and share their mutual interests. Novice collectors will find great examples of antique, vintage, contemporary, and commissioned scrimshaw belonging to experienced collectors.
A Community where the PAST...PRESENT...and FUTURE.....COME TOGETHER!!!
