Rare Native American Indian Stirrup
This is a very old and rare item that is in excellent condition. It was ingeniously made of from one piece of hand carved wood that was notched and then bent into position. The wood was then tied with what I believe is sinew. Then it was covered with animal hide, possibly buffalo, that was stretched and tied around the entire stirrup. This piece shows the high skill level and beautiful craftsmanship of it’s maker. It was purchased at a relic show in central Ohio in the late 60’s.
Huge 3/4 Grooved Maul
This big boy has a nice overall polish with the groove being even more highly polished. It is made of a high quality pink quartz material. It shows some nice use wear at the larger end. My guess is that this weighs 6-7 pounds. And I am paying for shipping :(
Spent Flake Core
This is all that is left and I have to say, he didn’t waste any. This was once large enough to produce long flake knives known as bladelets. It is hard to date because they were used throughout Native American history. Flake cores are fairly rare in that there was only one used to produce nearly a hundred bladelets.
Ornamental Bone Object
This is an unusual piece that was found in association with many Woodland artifacts. It has been cut and rounded on both ends. Possibly used as an ornamental decoration such as a nose or ear piercing. If anyone has more information, I would be happy to hear it.
