An Important Eskimo Kodiak Island 3-hole kayak baidarka c1850-1890
Model of an Kodiak Island 3-hole kayak. The three-person baidarka came into use after the coming of Russian fur traders, who typically sat in the center cockpit and did not paddle. Very unusual lead hands and tool.

I have never seen this variety for sale before. This would have been a real toy far rarer than the later ones produced for tourist. Has several splits and may be missing a rider. These can be repaired with pieces of sausage casings. L 25" x 5" x 3.

Nearly identical to one in the Peabody Museum in fact probably made by the same hands. This web site also has an explanation on how to repair splits.
