A Beautiful 19th century ANTIQUE Whalebone Ship's Block with Whalebone Grommet and Outstanding Ropework binding


Item Description:

The best single block I have ever seen! Fantastic condition, color, patina and ropework binding. Length: 8" NOTE: This block comes from a long deceased collector from Mattapoisett, MA. This gentleman lived from 1874 until 1940 and was an avid collector a whaling artifacts. He was a director of the Old Dartmouth Historical Society, now known as the New Bedford Whaling Museum, from 1919 to 1940. Many of his objects are on display at the museum.
