SCR1 - Sailorís Whale Bone & Ivory
This nicely crafted, but relatively simple, walking stick was surely
crafted by a whale man while on a whaling voyage in the 19th
Century. The cane is 33 Ĺ inches long, including a German silver ferrule atop a
steel tip to the well shaped pommel carved from a Sperm Whale tooth. The pommel
is globular with narrowed to a neck that meets the shaft at a ring of German
Silver. The shaft is well tapered bone from the lower jaw of a Sperm Whale.
The top of the pommel has a central disk of inset whale ivory. The is a single
drying crack that passes up one side of the pommel. This is not unusual. It is
a fine example.
