Game Ball From Ohio-Reserved
Game Ball From Ohio-Reserved

This is a great example of Native American leasure activity. This hardstone sphere rolls surprisingly straight for being hand made probably more than a thousand years ago. It was never polished and shows the pecking marks and ground surfaces with a considerable amount of patina. You can definately tell it was man made.

Small Double Sided Mortar and Pestle
Small Double Sided Mortar and Pestle

Here is a very nice and well used small mortar and pestle. It is hard to see the indentations on both sides of the mortar in the photos. The centers are about 1/4″ lower on the working areas. There is a nice polish from use in the middle of both sides and the outer edges still show the pecking from being shaped. This is a great and unusually small example. It was possibly made to be portable. The pestle was found a couple years later in the same field. That doesn’t necessarily mean they were ever a pair but they do seem to fit each others contour. The pestle has a nutting divot on it’s working side and has pecking from rough shaping still present. It also has a nice smoothing on the bottom from use. They display very well together.

These items were part of a collection purchased in the mid 60’s. There is one small painted pottery disk that has been ground smooth on the edges. There are two other interesting items fashioned from bone, shell or possibly ivory. The long piece has been drilled at one end. I am not sure of their use but if anyone knows please send me an email.

Rare Native American Indian Stirrup
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.
