18th Century American Snuff Box

Here is an original, 18th Century American snuff box. You can tell its an American box by examining the construction techniques used as well as the style of engraving used. The wiggle engraving was a very common style of engraving used in the 18th Century and this one is done with 2 adjacent smoking pipes above a pitcher and what appears to be 2 drinking glasses. The box also has a nicely executed border to tie it all together. The box is in extremely nice condition, having basically no wear to the brass box itself or the engraving, the hinge is in perfect tact and the clasp holds the lid closed properly. The dimensions of this neat little piece of American history are 2 7/8″ long by 2 1/8″ wide and 1″ thick. The perfect size to tote your snuff around in your pocket!! For additional photos please visit our website and go to CURRENT SPECIALS.

18th early 19th Century Iroquois Ball Headed Club

Straight from the Cattaraugus Reservation of Western New York, we are offering this great late 18th early 19th Century Iroquois Ball Head Club carved from heavy dense maple burl. The Club measures roughly 16.5 inches in length and is carved with the effigy of a panther's head comprising the business end. The Panther was a special animal to the early Iroquoian People that held great power and was frequently portrayed on pipes, combs and other objects both utilitarian and religious in nature. The animal's head is done in a very simplistic manner with tiny raised nodules on the top representing ears, crescent shaped hollows for the eyes, two holes for the nostrils and a wide open mouth with protruding tongue being the main striking point. The carving was done with metal tools with marks evident from knives. Over all the piece presents a hard dry patina with low to heavy polish from handling and use. There are several age cracks through out the club head. This piece was purchased directly from a member of the Seneca Nation and had passed down by descent through his family.
