For What It’s Worth



At the Edward King House Senior Center on appraisal day last week, a lady brought in a pair of scrimshaw whale teeth dating from the mid to late 19th century. The pieces were handed down from her New Bedford. The decoration was well above average and we estimated the pair between $1,000 and $1,500, with a dealer offering the pair at a higher price. We offer free appraisals the third Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the King House each month. — Federico Santi, partner, Drawing Room Antiques (Free appraisals by appointment.
