Carved Whale Bone in the form of three skeletons, possibly considered erotic, measuring 14cm high and fixed to a square based plinth. Excellent quality and free of damage. Difficult to date but this item was part of an estate that contained fine Victorian scrimshaw.
Ask the Dealer
I live in Lancashire (U.K.) and have been a dealer and collector of scientific and nautical instruments for a number of years. My stock has included some fine items from museums and colleges, which were surplus to their requirements. I occasionally purchase some interesting items from abroad, having established some reliable sources.
