Well composed scene of whaling with a bark-rigged ship and five boats, two of which have been upset by a whale. The tryworks on the ship are working and the after sail is being used as a stabiliser.

The patina is a golden hue and the tooth itself is long and slender, almost perfect for the scene illustrated.

Nineteenth century.

Height. 165 mm. (6 1/2 inches).
