Small ivory sperm-whale scrimshaw of a sailing ship by Duke Long (1982) mounted in 14K gold mermaid pendant. 25.0 grams, 2-1/2" x 1-1/4" x 1/4". Collectors of recoveries from the Concepcion (1641) are familiar with the work of artist Duke Long, whose ink and scrimshaw engravings of ships and scenes are beautifully detailed and accurate, such as the galleon on this small piece, a cross-section cut of a whale tooth, with tasteful gold mermaid mounting at top for attaching to a necklace (two small loops).
