An interesting and decorative 19th century Sawfish rostrum bill.
Sawfish, also known as Carpenter Sharks, are a family of Rays. They are characterised by a long, narrow, flattened rostrum, or nose extension, lined with sharp teeth in a way that resembles a saw.
This example was originally from the science department of an independant school in Dorset and is mounted on onyx for display.
