|Minnesota, North Dakota, Santee Sioux,Woodlands |
Eastern Sioux, circa 1860, with a figural horse carved from Catlinite. It has outstretched, running forelegs, and a graceful curve to the neck. There was something toward the back of the bowl that was lost long ago - a rough spot is visible where it broke. The horse is inlaid with lead morning star and moon symbols, and a fish. The pipe stem appears to be original to the piece, with a good fit. It is twisted, and has intricately carved fretwork around which is wrapped colored quills. These patterns were supposed to confuse the smoker as to which way the smoke would drift. This is one of the most attractive pipe and stem combinations we've seen. Custom iron stand included.
