  1. I have a small scrimshaw piece that was given to me by my late father. It has a face of a cat that now is very faded & has a gold bail to be hung on my charm. Racelet. I was hoping to find an artist who might be able to recreate a more vivid cat. Could you let me know if that is possible & I could easily send a picture of the piece. Thank you, Kathleen

    1. Hi Kathleen, and thanks for writing! If you would send a picture and the state you live in, I’d be happy to put it up on the site and hopefully find a scrimshaw artist that would be able to help you. Due to the laws regarding ivory it would not be advisable to send it out of state since it may get confiscated, despite the fact that you are only getting it worked on and not selling it.

  2. I am considering selling my small collection of whale tooth scrimshaw pieces.
    Artists:1) Alvarado…2)Shan
    *One unsigned piece depicts a sailing ship named BOSTONIA – 4 ½” X 21/4″
    *Another sailing ship piece is 4″ X 1″ …also shows a boy holding a model of the ship leaving port
    *Another shows whaling ship and sounding whale
    *Another shows a whaling ship and breaching sperm whale
    Can you tell me anything about the artists and the Bostonia?

    How do I begging the process of selling these beautiful pieces?

    Thank you,
    Ron Smith
