HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$5,000.00
This great pair of Paleo Clovis Points (RLK.7 and RLK.8), dating c.13,000 – 10,000 BP, was purchased by the current owner from the late Calvin Howard, known world-wide for his accuracy in artifact authentication. Measuring 3 7/16” and 3 13/16” in length, the writer grades both of the points at a 9+ grade with no significant chips or dings. Made from the attractive Payson chert, which is found in outcrop on the east side of the Mississippi River in Adams County, Illinois, one point comes wi...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$3,500.00
From the estate of the late Lynn Langdon, he acquired this spectacular burnished red-ware olla (LLL483) in the mid-20th century in West Mexico. The olla, about 15” across from nose-tip to nose-tip, is attributed to the Colima horizon dating into the Pre-Classic period c.300BC-300AD. Protruding equidistantly apart along the shoulder break are eight powerfully expressed, almost identical helmeted heads. Due to apparent heavy surface restoration and repainting, and evidence of some repair through...

$2,500.00
This dynamite blade (RXB.4) is from the Rhonda Beck collection. The banded rock has been identified as Harrison County chert, a stone type used in Adena blade production in the Ohio Valley area in the northeastern quadrant of the U.S. Dating c.4000-2500 B.P., and measuring 6 1/2" in length and 1 15/16" at its maximum width, the gracefully shaped knife is intact with virtually no damage....as close to a 10 as one would hope to find. Cal Howard, who authenticated the blade, said it was one of the ...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$2,000.00
This fascinating and mysteriously designed, repoussee-decorated Pre-Columbian gold nose ornament (WSG-1) was found in the Ayabaca region of northern Peru in the mid-20th century. Purchased by its current owner in 1964 at the former Stolper Galleries located in Manhattan, New York City, it has remained in the buyer's collection as a treasured example of the ancient goldsmith's art. Testing at @ 20K gold, it was made on thin, very flexible hammered sheet gold that exhibits supporting evidence of i...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$2,000.00
After looking at this brown chert beauty (RXB.9), you may have already guessed that it indeed is another from the Rhonda Beck collection! Typed as a Dalton-Hemphill dating into the Early Archaic period, c.8000-7200BC, it measures 5 5/8" in length and is virtually flawless with an old, lightly inked notation on one side that reads "Hardin Co, ILL". Our fourth listed point from that collection (with one more to go), it comes with a certificate of authenticity by Calvin Howard, well known in the fi...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,950.00
This remarkably well-preserved set of ancient hollow high karat gold earrings (WJF413) came out of Afghanistan during the Russian occupation. In dented condition, they have been adapted for modern wear with gold studs. Measuring 1 1/8” across, and 1 ¾” from the bottom to the top of the original ear loop, the earrings are believed to date into the Pre-Islamic period sometime during the late first millennium BC to the middle first millennium AD. The ‘gems’ are garnet-colored glass beads. ...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,500.00
This 9 7/8" tall PROFESSOR B. E. MANN'S ORIENTAL STOMACH BITTERS bottle (193.86HJ), dating into the 1870s, was dug behind the old post hospital at the site of Fort Fred Steele, Wyoming (1868-1886) in the mid-20th century. With a beautiful, translucent, almost reddish amber, the embossed panels of this great example of the rare Mann's bitters have bowed in about 3/8" (occurred at the time of manufacture). For the exceedingly picky, there is a hardly visible (you need a 10X loupe) ding on the mout...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,500.00
This highly burnished red ware melon jar (CLP 1) is one of my favorite items from Claudia Proto's collection of West Mexican Pre-Columbian art. 8" wide and 6 1/4" tall, it simply bubbles with fun and style in spite of the its obviously damaged condition ( in our opinion, it still deserves a quality rank of '7', with 10 being the tops). Assigned to the Colima horizon dating c,100-300AD, it suffers a bruised nose and a rim that is missing a couple of chunks with some glue to hold another in place...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,500.00
The third great point (RXB.1) from the Rhonda Beck collection, this is a 4 1/2" long x 1 1/8" wide Agate Basin point in top condition. Dating into the Transitional Paleo to the Early Archaic Period, c.10,500-8000 B.P., it comes without specific provenance, but the stone type has been identified as High Ridge Burlington Chert by well known authenticator Calvin Howard. A stunning example of early man's stone knapping ability, it is presented in a Riker-style frame and comes with Howard's certifica...
All Items : Antiques : Regional Art : Americas : Pre Columbian : Pre 1492 item #1104044 (stock #111.5HD)
HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,500.00
This fascinating Pre-Columbian bead necklace (111.5HD), made up of beads found in the north coast of Peru and assembled by the Orlandini Museum that operated in Lima during the mid-20th century (their descriptive paper on others from the collection is dated August 1955), is probably Moche in origin, c.100-800AD. From the collection of Lorenzo Fritz, it was purchased by him in the US decades ago and recently entered our inventory due to a trade. The workmanship on the small clay pendants is amazi...
All Items : Antiques : Regional Art : Americas : Pre Columbian : Implements : Pre 1492 item #724529 (stock #LFG.412)
HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,350.00
This almost perfect Pre-Columbian polychrome basket (LFG412) is attributed to the Tiahuanacan Period of highland Bolivia, c.400-1200AD. Measuring 6” across, and approximately 3 ½” in height, the four top coils down from the basket’s rim are woven with two different alternating colors of reed in a fashion that defines a simple geometric pattern around the upper part of the body. The basket reed is in overall very good condition with a few areas of light wear, a minor number of non-weakenin...
All Items : Antiques : Regional Art : Americas : Pre Columbian : Handiwork : Pre 1492 item #726389 (stock #LFG.442)
HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,350.00
This incredibly well preserved set of Pre-Columbian wood ear plugs (LFG442), on which the geometrically decorated shell and dark greenstone elements are each held in place with an almost invisible touch of contemporary glue, is attributed to the Moche horizon of Peru, c.100-800AD. Not wearable today due to the fragile nature of the wood that has dried and shrunk through the many centuries of entombment, there are certainly few other such pairs that have survived this well. Measuring one inch fro...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,300.00
This beautifully crafted, almost 1¼ pound bronze circlet (97.56HD) was found during the Russian occupation in the ancient oasis kingdom of Bactria located in the deserts of north Afghanistan and now known as BMAC (Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex). Heavily patinated and encrusted with copper salts, it is a spectacular example of the early bronze worker's art. Dating c.2500-1500BC, and almost certainly too heavy to have been worn as a bracelet, the ends are formed into 'dragon heads' (pos...

This 24” long double-stranded necklace (103.53HD) is assembled from mostly Precolumbian silver beads that had to have been found at a single site! From the Trujillo area of Peru, the interesting necklace is 24” in length and attributed to the Chimu horizon, c.1000-1400AD. In addition to very small and intermediately sized hollow round beads, there are four ½” square hollow silver spacer beads. There are a dozen or so elongated and round greenstone beads (presumably turquoise) balanced alo...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$1,200.00
This spectacular hand-carved 17” long ‘ceremonial club’ (KJH87) was purchased by Ken Hladek in March 2003 (as he recalls, it was an estate sale and the item number was 0962..."INDIAN TRADE WAR CLUB - LUKA) at a Lolli Brothers auction in Macon, Missouri. The only information that came with this lethal-looking weapon was a note that it was from the William R. Gauld collection of Elmo, Montana, a town located well within the boundaries of the Flathead Indian reservation. Many other items offe...
