Early 20th century whaletooth, unusually flattened off to the base. This must have been a big tooth to have been cut down this far and is still heavy. One side depicts a typical whaling scene of ship, whaling boats, icebergs and a whale being flensed and hauled onboard. The other side is of the ship probably returning home flanked by a smaller ship and the nose of the tooth has a harbour. Good work. Measures 13cm x 7cm.
