This is a great item to add to your collection or decor. Priced for a quick sale. I have been a collector of Curiosities for most of my 51 years. You never know what I may have up at any given time. I spend a great deal of time at antiques shops, shows, auctions and with private collectors. My data base of buyers and sellers is huge. I offer items mainly for the decorator / collector market. I DO NOT MAKE UP FALSE STORYS TO HELP SELL AN ITEM. My photographs are of exceptional quality and show the item I have listed in its entirety. I have spent many years curating, cataloging and restoring collections for museums and private collectors.
In my experience, I can tell you this... There is no one person that can actually tell you when an object was made or who made that object. They can just give their opinion and while some opinions are better than others, they are still just opinions. It is for this reason that I do not offer authentication services nor do I recognize those opinions of authentication made by third parties.
It has been seen time and time again, to do both (authenticate and broker) is a conflict of interest and leads to less than ethical practices. In all fairness of disclosure, I only state what I have been told about an item at the time of acquisition or what I can see first hand. In all of my dealings I adhere to national and international laws in regards to the acquisition, sale and transport of collectibles and antiquities. In specific regards to Native American items, the name of the artist, tribal affiliation and number is given when available. When this information is not available, I can only give out my best opinion as to the origins of the piece or what I have been told.
PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE VERY LITTLE PROVENANCE ON THIS ITEM JUST THE STORY I GOT AT THE TIME I ACQUIRED IT. Good luck and happy biding!
