Description
19 1/2" Haida-Tlingit Grease Bowl. British Columbia. Exquisite Northwest Coast, Native American, artifact. Carved Wood Bird Effigy Bowl (16 1/2") with Carved Frog (4 5/8") that insets in mouth. Mother of Pearl inlay. Wood has been professionally preserved with some minor touchup and repairs commensurate with age and material. Excellent condition for this type of artifact. Inlay intact and appears original. Ex-Tommy Tucker, Jack Roberts, Allen Brown. When Allen Brown pictured this Grease Pot in his 1942 book (Indian Relics and their Values, p68), he dated it as pre-1850, making it an older and more valuable example. One of the finest of its type. Also featured on the back cover of the auction catalog. Grease bowls were made to contain edible oils used to accompany meats used during large gatherings or celebrations. This bowl is likely made from Sitka Spruce.
