Scrimshaw Tatting Shuttle and Sailors Ditty Box

The first sailors ditty box was so popular, Dave decided to make another one! This one features a 3 inch carved ancient mammoth ivory whale on the top of the 4 ½ by 2 ¾ inch midnight blue bentwood box.

Dave carved the 3 inch tatting shuttle from walnut and scrim'd the inlayed ancient mammoth ivory with a lighthouse scene.
