Front of rectangular piece of whale bone is engraved with a temple-like building, Unknown windmills, a basket with a pineapple, a spouting whale, birds and an anchor, and two sailing ships. Notes from Stuart Frank's visit November 4, 2009: Small, not flexible; nautical theme; brig, sloop, Parthenon; most likely made Newport or Warren because of the speckled whale. Rectangular shaped whalebone, inscribed in script: "du corset les liens sont Unknown rompus/voici l'inutile baleine/ou ses charmes sont en prison/(parny)" Notes from stuart frank's visit november 4, 2009: Could be french; quote translated as: "the corset lines are broken Here is the useless whale And yet these charms are in prison." Poem is from evariste de parny, late 18th, early 19th century french poet.
