19th Century Scrimshaw Panbone Plaque

Price: $6,800.00


Antique Scrimshaw Panbone Plaque. Sailor’s folk art engraved whale panbone plaque, circa 1850, featuring full length portraits of two elegantly dressed ladies in the latest fashions, no doubt copied from a favored image in Godey’s Lady’s Book. The plaque is a large, thick and dense piece of whale bone. The period engraving is an excellent example of sailor’s work, untutored but talented. Rare indeed. A centerpiece for any collection.

8 1/4 in H x 6 1/2 in W
