18th early 19th Century Iroquois Ball Headed Club

Straight from the Cattaraugus Reservation of Western New York, we are offering this great late 18th early 19th Century Iroquois Ball Head Club carved from heavy dense maple burl. The Club measures roughly 16.5 inches in length and is carved with the effigy of a panther's head comprising the business end. The Panther was a special animal to the early Iroquoian People that held great power and was frequently portrayed on pipes, combs and other objects both utilitarian and religious in nature. The animal's head is done in a very simplistic manner with tiny raised nodules on the top representing ears, crescent shaped hollows for the eyes, two holes for the nostrils and a wide open mouth with protruding tongue being the main striking point. The carving was done with metal tools with marks evident from knives. Over all the piece presents a hard dry patina with low to heavy polish from handling and use. There are several age cracks through out the club head. This piece was purchased directly from a member of the Seneca Nation and had passed down by descent through his family.

Rare Butterfield Revolver

The Butterfield is a rare and unusual revolver from the mid-19th century. Only 640 were made and this is a very good example with matching numbers, some finish remaining, and a pleasant patina. The single action cycles and indexes beautifully, but the pellet priming tube is stuck in place. 5-shot, .41 caliber, 7" octagon barrel, well marked on top of frame.

Original George Cunkle Rifle *** PRICE REDUCED!! ***

THIS RIFLE JUST GOT A MAJOR PRICE CUT OF $1000!! This is a spectacular gun by an extremely rare maker. George Cunkle worked in Harrisburg Pa. between 1800 and 1840. This rifle was built with a famous Pennabecker octagon barrel that still retains its original bore and rifling. The muzzle is also nicely decorated. It is stocked in curly maple and displays a beautiful pierced and engraved four piece patchbox. Eleven silver inlays were also employed for its decoration. The engraved Golcher Lock and hand made Double-Set triggers are original to the gun. The toe plate and barrel tang are fully engraved and a shaped and pierced forestock plate adds to the overall quality of this great gun. As a bonus, this gun still retains 95% of its original finish. Please take time to study the photos well, as this rifle offers a great deal of traditional quality and precise workmanship for a very reasonable investment. There is an old repair in the wrist area and a small toe plate repair, otherwise this rifle offers absolutely no apologies at all. The surface condition is soft, warm and very appealing. Please call if you have any questions, or if you wish to discuss this rifle in greater detail. For additional photos please visit our website and go to CURRENT SPECIALS. www.cabincreek.net
