Woodlands Miniature Bowl & Ladle

Circa: 1820-1840
Size: bowl; 3 3/4" (l) x 2 1/2" (w) / ladle; 3" (oal) x 2 1/2" (w)
Probably Ojibwa based on the shape of the bowl. The ladle is one of the smallest that I have ever seen. The oval bowl is thinly hewn and exhibits a beautiful patina.

Due to the scale and limited wear, they were probably part of a medicine bundle. I am not sure if they started life together, as it is difficult to tell, but together they make a special pair.

HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES AVAILABLE.

Condition: Excellent with expected wear from age and use. The ladle has a natural, shallow, fissure in the bowl leading to the stem.

Price: $5,200.00
