More About this Item


Description: This is a Native American Woodlands Indian effigy ceremonial ladle from New England, circa 1800s. The wooden effigy ladle was hand hewn using stones, knives and perhaps a beaver tooth for smoothing. The smaller Native American Woodland Indian ladles were used everyday as an eating implement or spoon. The longer ones were used as a ceremonial ladles, as the decorative handle shows. These ladles were used primarily to share from a communal bowl. The wooden effigy ladle has a spout of sorts, which would have been used for sipping and eating. The back and inside of the antique effigy bowl has a hand hewn shape which is more primitive than if it had been made by a lathe. On the end of the long handle is a carved effigy, which appears to be a feather shape. The ladle is made of a lightweight soft wood such as poplar, which would have been native to the area and was commonly used.
Dimensions: 20 inches in long and 4 1/2 inches wide at the bowl
Date: 1800s
Condition Report: Age appropriate wear especially on the bowl and patina
