Antique Artifact Native American Spindle Half Bowl Piece Find unmounted arizona. This is a large piece that was mounted in a beautiful box and was disintegrated and deteriorated. Unrepaired large portion and reattached two smaller pieces. PRICE ADJUSTED FOR BREAK. I saved most of it, and have in a loose box as of now. This style was noted as “pre” Apache and detailed as before settlement and simple design before black figures painted and scribed on sides by Navajo etc. The detailing on sides and groove depth also if held up. This one is incredible. Areas of origin, Zuni, Apache And Navajo Hopi as well gentleman was from Midwest famous explorer 1913 to 1923 and after was a doctor from the Mormon church many findings I’ll send some pictures with this piece as well. All measurements are there was found and labeled area in picture and documented on finding. Pre Apache settlement stated and found with other colleagues. Multiple pieces in and around described as northern eastern Arizona. Had story about his father and other colleagues were having trouble with newly Arizona state, federal or authority figure because they were befriending Indian tribes in those areas and staying the night with them out in the field. An officer had told him these aren’t your people, etc. And he stated they are more my people than they are yours. I thought that was pretty cool. Many different names but the main one was William P Thornhill, or William B Thornhill Terry, something, etc. If you look at the other pieces that came from the same area they’re really cool and I might keep this piece if it doesn’t sell quickly and re-frame label, etc. But I have so much stuff and cannot get some appraised. Let me know if you have any questions.
