  • Description
    Haida Historic carved potlatch spoon
    This ceremonial spoon is beautifully and deeply carved. It has multiple totemic figures carved on its handle, which is joined with 2 copper nails to the bowl of the spoon. The spoon is joined by wire to a plexi custom made stand:

    Mountain goat horn

    circa 9 7/8” long

    excellent condition with a very slight scrape to one edge of the bottom of the spoon

    ex: Fred and Mimi Boschan Collection (purchased privately); Marcy Burns Collection, 1988

    The images on this spoon represent figures who are well known to students of Historic Northwest Coast art. A spoon such as this was probably meant to be used in a potlatch ceremony.
