RARE 1761 Busk with Whaling Scene
A most unique 18th-century carved wooden busk with a charming sperm whale being pursued by a whale boat. Also deeply carved into the busk is a single-masted sailing vessel, a chip-carved fan, and the date A.D. 1761. On the reverse in pencil, “property of Stephen B. Dean.” In fine condition with a mellow patina, it measures 11.5” X 2.5”. This is a truly unique piece of nautical folk art.
