Tlingit Northwest coast copper and horn potlatch ladle
$4,000

Very scarce Northwest Coast Tlingit potlatch ladle, fashioned from hand-beaten copper and Dall mountain sheep horn. Circa 1840s. Size: 9 inches length (3.25 inches handle). Copper objects were signs of great wealth and prestige among Northwest tribes. Such spoons were prized possessions that were brought out for marriages and important feasts. This spoon has a carved horn handle in the form of a seal with flippers and red stained teeth, which is riveted to a copper stem and bowl. The under-side of the bowl has an incised image of a bear spirit face. Excellent condition.
