Mattapoisett Scrimshaw Bookmark


Sailors once carved designs onto long flat pieces of whalebone as a token of love that would be used as corset stiffeners or busks. This resin bookmark is a representation of that traditional busk with all the intricate detail of the historical whaleman art. Four iconic images of Mattapoisett's history have been skillfully etched on to this bookmark with various colored ribbon attached.
