Origin: Pueblos or Plains
Date: 19th C.
Media: Stone – Catlinite
Dimensions: 3.75″ long by 1.1″ by 1.2″
Description: This two toned catlinite pipe shows great wear to the surface. The detailed work along with the shape suggests a stone fetish. It looks like it’s been rubbed a long time in certain places as if it were treated like a fetish, or a contemplation stone. This came out of the Larry Frank collection, and the history is that it came from a pueblo. The form is quite different from a classic Plains pipe, so I feel comfortable suggesting that this is pueblo. I’m very open to other ideas.
Condition: Condition is excellent with a highly abraded surface.
