Looking for a Small sperm whale carving
« on: October 10, 2020, 09:11:18 PM »
I have been searching for this small carving for several years. It was posted on ebay and i missed bidding on it. I would like to know if anyone has something like it or knows where I can get one made. Picture attached

When I read the title I was expecting a wooden carving. I made one myself two years ago for my son as a toy (together with a gaint squid), but your`s seems to be made from soap stone or onyx and very tiny. Sorry, can`t help on that whale, but I found a lot of stores of several businesses sell onyx carved animals (and dinosaurs), like cobblers, decoraters, trinket shops, leather goods etc., but unfortunately I cannot recall this specific figures. Will keep my eyes open on my next visits to such shops.

Thanks. I think they were made from whale bone, ivory or tagua nut. But not sure thanks for the  reply. The original purchase was in New Bedford Mas. an Old whaling port.
