Up for auction here is this old Native American Bird stone/clay pipe, in the shape of a bird, which I recently purchased at an Estate Sale of a serious Native American artifact collector. As far as I know, it has not been authenticated.
It measures 4” long x 1¾” tall, and is in very good condition with no cracks, chips, or repairs. It has good air flow, but does not seem to have ever been used. On one side, as you can see in my pictures, almost the entire wing is lighter in color, as well as his head. On the other wing, there is only a small area in the middle that is lighter. This light spot has a small dent or dimple towards the front.
Please take a look at my pictures, and ask any questions you may have. This would make a great addition to any vintage American Indian Collection. I had to list this under reproduction Ebay would kick it off since it has not been authenticated.
I purchased quite a few artifacts from this collector, so please take a look at my other auctions. I will combine shipping on all items sold, as long as there is no possibility of them getting damaged in transit.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DON’T INTEND TO PAY, PLEASE DO NOT BID!!!
I gladly ship to International bidders, but I do request that you PLEASE email me for shipping cost before you bid! Some of the USPS rates seem to be much higher than bidders expect. Please ask questions, if any, before bidding.
While I strive to be as knowledgeable as possible, I am not an expert on everything. Thus, just like at a live auction, this is your opportunity to ask questions, request additional photos or measurements, etc. All items are sold "as is". I do not accept returns or make refunds, unless I have grossly misrepresented an item. In that case, I will refund purchase price only! I do not intentionally hide a defect about an item, but again, you should ask any questions you have before bidding.
Also, please take a look at my other auctions. I will combine shipping to multiple winners. If you are the winner of more than one auction, please request a total before paying. Thank you for viewing my auction, and GOOD LUCK!!!!
