$8,300.00 SOLD 

Offered here is an extremely rare 100% original Anasazi bracelet which is made from New Mexico fluorite strung on cotton cord. This piece was discovered in the fall of 1982 by Chris Robinson (General Hospital fame) and two of his friends when they were excavating a ruin on a private ranch just south of Reserve New Mexico. The bracelet was found inside a small plain ware jar which accounts for the excellent state of preservation. There are four fluorite pieces carved in the shape of bear claws and three cylindrical beads threaded on a cord of wrapped cotton. The New Mexico fluorite material has been confirmed by Wayne Thompson who is a well known mineral expert.

Anasazi and Hohokam carved jewelry pieces are highly coveted by institutions and collectors alike … they are virtually never encountered in such a state of preservation. Needless to say this is one of the most important surviving items of prehistoric Native American jewelry extant.

The photos are true to the real colors of the piece, two of the claws have chips which are insignificant.


ANASAZI KAYENTA OLLA/CUP W/ORIGINAL YUCCA YARN AND TIE

Offerings such as this wonderful combination are rarely seen or available to the collecting public. The olla contained this ball of yucca yarn and was covered with the cup. The olla (9" x 7.5") and the cup (whole, 6") are Kayenta; the contents that were with it is a LARGE ball of yarn (6+", over 100 feet long). It was found in a cave by Zack Tillery of Aspen Colorado maybe 5-7 years ago. The cup acted as the lid and protected the contents perfectly. He split the items up and sold them individually.....I located them with help and put it back together.

Please note the ORIGINAL yucca tie on the side; this was done OVER 800 YEARS AGO to secure a small crack so that it would not open further therefore rendering the olla useless. Because the tie is made from organic material and is subject to decay, they rarely survived. Also note the small hole...when found this hole was filled with what appears to be pine pitch. The material has been preserved and is contained in aluminum foil which is inside the olla.

One cannot overstate the rarity of an item like this....noting that it is perfect original condition.

SOLD 

Anasazi, Basket Maker II (C. 200AD– 500AD) sandal measuring 7 inches by 4.5 inches is made from twisted yucca fibers. This is a very interesting example as it is in perfect condition and shows clearly how this type is made. The sole is a crisscross weave of a twisted set of yucca fibers about 3/8" to 1/2" in diameter. Two separate twisted pieces come up from the rear to a fancy knot and two other pieces continue toward the front. The left one went between the big and second toes; the right piece between the fourth and small toe. These two extensions have a large closed loop holding them together. It appears to have been made for a child about eight years old. The sandal comes from an old Arizona collection assembled by Colonel Vaughn between the 1930's through the 80Â’s. A SMALL WHITE STONE APPEARS IN THE PICTURES TO HOLD UP THE TOP OF THE SANDAL.

VERY RARE ANASAZI HUMAN STONE SANDSTONE PALLET

VERY RARE ANASAZI HUMAN STONE SANDSTONE PALLET

Treasures Of Our Past
480-596-3700


SOLD  

This pallet is an absolutely genuine and unique work of art from the prehistoric Southwest! Any stone carving from the prehistoric Southwest is scarce with the majority of the known pieces coming from the Mimbres, Hohokam or Casas cultures. Examples of stone carvings from the Anasazi (C. 900 - 1300AD) culture are rare with human forms being the rarest and most desirable examples. The distinguishing characteristic which sets this apart as Anasazi is that it is made from a red sandstone…a material that was not used by the Mimbres, Hohokam or Casas. This incredible pallet measures 9.25” tall and exhibits no less than SEVEN (7) distinct pigment colors on the surface.

The obverse has a distinctive head with three dimensional eyes and nose; there are four horizontal bands of color…red, white, dark red/white and black. The center of the pallet has a distinctive white pigment and the border is executed in both red and black. There are two well-defined legs, one red and the other black, which terminate in a distinctive foot. The obverse though is what really distinguishes this piece. Again, the head has four bands of color but in the center of the back are SEVEN (7) clearly defined concentric rings, each a different color.

What this piece was used for is not clear; it is possible that the center held a reflective mica material which would have made it similar to today’s mirrors. A truly rare and exceptional artifact of the Anasazi culture!

There is a break at the neck that has been glued, no restoration or any addition of pigment or paint.

SOLD! 

Pottery is “for ever”, it will survive in excess of 10,000 years given normal conditions. But items made from plant material usually deteriorate in a few decades which makes the survival of this amazing basket all that more incredible! Measuring 5.5” tall and 3.9” wide it is composed of willow rods and polychrome reed material. It is in perfect condition without and type of restoration whatsoever.

The period for the basket is P-IV (1300 - 1525AD) and is completely consistent with the designs known to have been made during the period with pottery.

This basket offers the sophisticated collector a rare opportunity to acquire a basket type which is virtually never seen in the marketplace today. Please feel free to call and discuss this important item with me.
