This is a very nice example of vintage Native American artwork. It was made in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. It was purchased at a museum auction in the 1960’s. It is in very good condition with no missing beads. There is a bit of fraying at one end of the cloth. I am sure it took very many hours for the artist to make this.

This is a very old Pre-Revolutionary War Era scrimshawed powder horn. It has the initials and date “PVD 1724” inscribed on the side as well as a naked woman. It is also decorated with copper stars and a cross. 1724 was the same year that Ben Franklin arrived in London.
Here is what was happening in the colonies in 1724:
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.
