I have a whales tooth, carved two sides. One has sailor

Customer Question

I have a whales tooth, carved two sides. One has sailor standing holding an American flag on a pole with a vase of roses above him. The other side is a ship under sail. Number of stars on the flag indicate the carving was from about 1850-1860. I was given this as a gift in 1958 and was told then that it was 134 years old. I think less, but not much.
