We are selling the tusk on the far right in this group shot photo. We do have 5 other legal pre 1972 narwhal tusks ranging from 50" to 90" that will be posted middle of next week (December 5th ish) from $11,750 to $20,000.
This is the largest narwhal tusk we have offered in over 40 years of business. It is 97" tall, just over 2 1/2" in diameter at the thickest part and weighs a hefty 15 pounds and 11 ounces. This tusk is very straight with exceptional fine twisting, a perfect tip and no cracks. It also has a very handsome uniform tan patina, they don't get any better than this, just shorter. It is priced at only $28,000 which includes shipping and insurance. We have had this tusk for about 5 years and are now prepared to sell it. More photos will be available and posted the middle of next week about the 4th of December (or sent on request if you call or email and want first dibs). We would prefer a personal or bank check or wire (rather than credit card) but are flexible, if you want to buy this and want to use your credit card….ok.
Narwhal tusks (pre 1972) can be shipped within the U.S. and with an export permit can be shipped to some countries overseas. The average size is 6’-7’ but can be much longer, these came into the U.S. from Canada before 1972 (45 years ago). When the Marine Mammal Protection Act was enacted it ended the importation into the U.S. but grandfathered/allowed the trade in tusks already here. We acquire these from individuals and estates, they are rare and pricey we usually have at least one, please inquire.
Please call 1-800-423-1945 for more photos of this tusk-available 12/4/19.
