Sperm Whale Teeth Book Ends Vintage

Description

Sperm Whale Teeth Book Ends Vintage pre 1972 Sperm Whale teeth from the Azores where at that time they still hunted whales in sail/row boats with hand thrown harpoons. These two nicely matched 6” teeth are set into (at the bottom) and pegged onto from the back side to mahogany book ends. The teeth are flattened on the back and have a single screw holding each tooth in place  so if removed from the wood there will be a screw hole in the back of each tooth.  Excellent specimens -$850.   Acquired from a Washington state resident who was in the Azores with his family as a child in the 1960's, his father bought sets for each child, he is the last sibling standing.  This cannot be sold or shipped out of Washington state due to Federal Law. Please do not order this if you do not live in Washington State, we will cancel and refund the order, a waste of your time and ours.
