(Enter more than $450)
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000
Description: This pipe tamper is superb, note that the handle area is painted red and blue within the natural wood geometric fields. Abstractly these appear to represent the red and blue flames in a fire. It is a fantastic nuance only Native Americans could have accomplished. The beaded (likely Northern Plains) case resembles an awl case but the tamper fits perfectly. Items were found together, ensemble. Which begs the question was it originally a tamper case made for the tamper or was it an awl case that was scavenged for a tamper? Regardless it is very eye appealing and they fit well and came together. Case is 12 1/4" L and Tamper is 8" L. Two great items for the price of one!
