14 Native American San Patrice Stone Arrowheads
Item Details
Description
Native American, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Mississippi, and Texas, Transitional Paleo Indian to Early Archaic, ca. 8000 to 6000 BCE (10,000 to 8,000 BP). An intriguing collection of 14 hand-knapped stone projectile points featuring a series of diverse forms, such as triangular side notch, auriculate, and triangular auriculate. All presenting variants of the San Patrice type, these arrowheads fall into the classifications of Keithville, St. Johns, Leaf River, Geneill, and Hope and boast tones of russet, sienna, dark grey, butterscotch, cream, black, and white. Size of largest: 3.25" L x 1.5" W (8.3 cm x 3.8 cm); Size of frame: 12.125" W x 8" H (30.8 cm x 20.3 cm)

San Patrice arrowheads are primarily found in the San Patrice cluster, which is concentrated in the western Gulf Coastal Plains of northeastern Texas, western Louisiana, and southwestern Arkansas, but also spreads throughout eastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, northern Texas, and eastern New Mexico.

Knapped lithics, like these examples, are made using percussion, striking them with other stones; the process required to get them the correct shape requires training and skill.

This piece has been searched against the Art Loss Register database and has been cleared. The Art Loss Register maintains the world’s largest database of stolen art, collectibles, and antiques.

Provenance: private Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA collection; ex-Charles (Charlie) Meyer collection, noted collector and famed illustrator for Greg Perino, famed authenticator and writer

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
