1st Mate Joseph Boyle Faux Scrimshaw
Ay yay Captain! This reproduction scrimshaw piece is an 1842 tribute to 1st Mate Joseph Boyle’s Captain, Captain Thos. Calder, and his many voyages on the Fogos, The Whaler, Delta, and Green Pt. Crafted from a substantial chunk of resin, this weighty piece is beautifully carved, and takes me right back to the 19th c. whaling days of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. A great historically inspired piece to set off your coffee table, mantle, or bookshelf!
