19th Century Scrimshaw Ditty Box and Spoons - Click for the bigger picture Sold19th Century Scrimshaw Ditty Box and Spoons - A superb sailor made set which was found in an original seaman's chest.

This is accompanied by two spoons of early form which are engraved on the handles with the initials T.M. and it would appear that the set has been carved by the same hand.
