More Visitors

The CRC was visited today by a group of world renown scrimshaw authorities who were wrapping up their tour of the East Coast scrimshaw collections at New Bedford, Nantucket, Sag Harbor and Cold Springs. The Visitors were especially impressed by the range and uniqueness of Mystic's collection including a set of walrus tusks carved by members of the USN Polar Exploration team aboard the JEANETTE, and an elephant tusk section engraved with a scene of a the "slaver SHARK."
