We’ve received several inquiries looking for artists who have created scrimshaw, and we’ll be posting them here over the next several days. Our first one is a set of pistol grips signed “R. Heinrich”. One side is a falcon sitting on a branch, while the other side has a falcon in flight
The work on these grips was commissioned around 1981 by the owner’s father. Anyone who knows anything about the artist? The owner would love to know if they are still actively scrimshawing or of any other works they have created. You can respond in the comments section. Thanks for looking!
