Authentic Whale Tooth Sperm Whale with Scrimshaw circa Mid 1900's

For the Nautical Collector who like the Natural Science Arts. This Whale tooth, Sperm Whale mostly likely, is a very nicely scrimshawed with the tall mast ship in the distance and the whale diving down just leaving it's tale visible. A classic drawing and depiction of the 1800's whaling industry.
This scrimshaw is on a real tooth, but the art looks to be done in the mid 1900's.
The tooth is approx. 5" tall.
