Description: This is a great and large scrapper.  The patina is a smooth, rich, soft yellow that feels so comfortable to the hand.  The age on this tool is very evident.  Inscribed at the base in green ink states “Collected from Dawn Red Bear, Eagle Butte, S.D. Given to her by her Grandmother. Dotes symbolize bison hides in her lifetime”.  The multiple dots in a trapezoidal shape can been seen at the top.  The very top series of these dots are worn away by use.  This scrapper comes with the stand.
