    Excited to learn from you guys about this, especially to see what Komokwa has to say. It's about 7.5" x 2" IMG_20200812_230601.jpg IMG_20200812_230436.jpg IMG_20200812_230626.jpg IMG_20200812_230512.jpg IMG_20200812_230644.jpg

    I'll try to get a better pics of the numbers, but I do not think it's a beluga whale (though I can see where you might, given the head shape). It appears to have a flipper or flippers, not a large whale's tale.

    Signature is too hard to make out but it doesn’t really make a huge difference. It’s a decent but rather generic piece worth about a hundred dollars or thereabouts.
