Antique Northwest Coast Native American Indian Carved Cedar Canoe & Paddle Oar. Beautiful old Northwest Coast Native American carved cedar canoe. It has with it a hand carved and hand painted paddle.
The paint is very worn but you can see it was painted with traditional First Nation designs in typical black and red paint. This example is thought to be 19th century which is quite old for wood tribal items from this region. It was formerly owned by an individual who worked as a restoration expert at a major Manhattan museum. That person then owned an antique and antiquities gallery in Manhattan.
Please inspect photos carefully for condition. Final photo has a soda can for scale.
This is a very nice piece for any Northwest Coast NA artifact/art collectors collection. This item is in the category "Antiques\Ethnographic\Native American". The seller is "riverwalker83" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
