Prehistoric and Historic Artifact Auction
We are very pleased to offer a quality selection of Prehistoric Native American Art from the Irwin Collection (Galen Irwin and son, Dr. Steve Irwin). This offering also includes a portion of the Irwin Historic Collection. Also included in this auction are a number of documented Spiro artifacts from the fabulous Allan Shope Collection. Included in this group are two Spiro Pipes pictured in the old Bell Photos, as well as a Geometric Conch Shell fragment that is one of the finest in private hands. This auction will be the final featured offering of the Dan Stroud Collection. Some superb artifacts remain to be dispersed from this collection, including Discoidals, Celts and Pottery. Of note, this will be a "cleanup" auction for the Kevin Pipes, Fred Abel and Dr. Hasewinkel collections. We have cleaned the shelves of some great material from these collections. This is an auction with hundreds of pictured and independently authenticated artifacts. One of the finest offerings of the year!
