This listing is for a Custom Made Faux Ivory Whales Tooth
This is NOT a REAL tooth. It is made of POLYURETHANE.
The original tooth was harvested long before the ban on whaling and no living whale was harmed in the cloning of this tooth.
The dimensions of the tooth are 5 x 2.25 x 1.25. It is not hollow, it is solid polyurethane.
One side of the original was sanded smooth and the other was left Natural. The copy is the same.
The photos shown are of the original tooth and the prototype copy.
I wanted to show a side by side comparison so you could get a feel of
the detailing of the copy. (The individual that was kind enough to loan
me the original tooth told me neither he or any of his family members
could not tell the difference between the real tooth and the copy from a
distance of three feet). Neither is for sale and are not a part of this
The tooth you are bidding on does NOT exist at the time of the listing. In keeping with eBay policy of allowing CUSTOM MADE items
to offer a choice of color, the tooth will be created after purchase
and receipt of payment in your choice of either a Natural Ivory or an
Aged Ivory color. The color shown in this listing is Aged. There is a
photo of the Base in Natural and Aged for comparison. The base will be
tinted to match the tooth.
Please email me with your choice or I will assume you are happy with the default color of NATURAL and process the order as such.
Poly will engrave and Scrimshaw very nicely. Just sand it smooth, seal
the pores with a good quality wax and use sharp tools.
BECAUSE THIS IS A CUSTOM MADE ITEM, THE PROCESSING AND SHIPPING TIME WILL AVERAGE TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS FROM RECEIPT OF PAYMENT
