Plains Indian Ghost Dance Mirror Antique Tomahawk Indian Wars

OFFERED IS PERHAPS THE FINEST MIRROR I HAVE OWNED. PLAINS INDIAN MIRROR, PAINTED A MUSTARD ON ONE SIDE AND BLUE ON THE REVERSE. PROFUSELY TACKED WITH A NUMBER OF "DROP" HOLES AROUND THE MIRROR. AN OLD HAIR DROP ATTACHED.

1890'S IS BELIEVED TO BE FROM THE GHOST DANCE REVIVAL WHICH TOOK PLACE AFTER THE 1880'S. HOWEVER, THE MIRROR STYLE SUGGESTS IT COULD BE EARLIER AND WAS PAINTED FOR THE GHOST DANCE. BLUE IS THE INDICATOR ON THIS THEORY AS BLUE AND YELLOWS WERE A CUSTOMARY COLOR USED DURING THE GHOST DANCE. VERY OLD DRY FINISH WITH CRAZING, CRACKS IN THE FINISH, HEAVY OLD GLASS BEVELED MIRROR, LEATHER TACKED ON TOP SHOWS EXTREME CRACKING, ONE TACK IS MISSING FROM THE TOP. THE SURFACE WAS LIGHTLY PRESERVED WITH A PRESERVATION WAX YEAR'S AGO AND HAS SOFTEN BACK TO IT'S NATURAL, DRY SURFACE.

THE HAIR DROP DOES REMOVE, PERHAPS WAS HIDE-GLUED IN ORIGINALLY. THIS IS A MAGNIFICENT MIRROR MEASURING 8" WIDE X 18" LONG WITHOUT THE DROP! MIRRORS WERE AN IMPORTANT PART OF NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE FROM GORILLA WARFARE TO REFLECTING BAD SPIRITS. A WONDERFUL MIRROR IS EVERY RESPECT, A SHOWPIECE FOR ANY SERIOUS COLLECTOR.
