amazing cross section of colorful materials and displaying a great, varied in Washington during the 1950's and 1960's 1,200.00

Item: Type: Rare Green Jadeite Adze Provenance: Price
DFCR117 A very rare and very large (for type) 5-5/8" long deep green Chloromelanite Jadeite Adze Found near Coeur D'Alene River 1200.00
which was highly polished in ancient times. It still shows the quarry marks on both sides in Northern Idaho in the 1940's 850.00
where the Native Americans would use a strand of rawhide covered with sand to cut the
blanks from the solid jadeite quarries. It has ancient usage marks, mostly at the base, and
these have been polished smooth from use in ancient times. These have been frequently
  found in Cedar groves, since they were used extensively to form cedar log canoes. df

Item: Type: Quilomene Bar Provenance: Price
RCCR1 A very wide (for type), very flat translucent, opalescent diagonally banded ice and From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 30.00
white agate Quilomene Bar Arrowhead which appears to have been greatly worked- recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
down in ancient times, due to a "salvage" effort after it sustained an impact fracture to
the tip. It's sparsely flaked on both faces by an amateurish knapper but shows good
mineralization in all the right places, which proves that it wasn't modernly "mucked with"

Item: Type: Snake River Dart Provenance: Price
RCCR2 A nice-sized, very colorful and well made lime green, orange and light brown chert Snake River From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 75.00
Dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a very advanced knapper. It has an recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
ancient nick to the tip of one barb and another very small ancient nick to one edge just above the
horizontal centerline (right side in photo 5) which appears to have been made during it's pressure
flaking/sharpening stage from a slightly overly aggressive pressure flake attempt. Other than these
points, it appears to be "all there" as it was originally made and used. I don't think I've ever seen
this combination of colors in a single point from any area in the past

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
RCCR3 A fully translucent ice, orange and burgundy agate Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, SOLD
is quite slim and which was created on a flake. Side A is thoroughly knapped to a recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon 6/12
median ridge by a very advanced knapper, while side B retains a 50% flat area, right up
it's center from the original flake's flat surface. It doesn't show anything that I would call
"damage", although the form, especially to one barb as well as the basal stem section is
a bit "irregular", due to the knapper's mis-judgments. Still a very attractive piece

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
RCCR4 A pretty nice light tan jasper Columbia Plateau Dart point which has burgundy colored From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 45.00
"veining". It was thoroughly flaked on both faces, although the flaking patterns are recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
somewhat subdued. One barb is ill-formed and the basal stem has a very slightly irregular
form, but after microscopic examination, I would blame these two flaws on the knapping
process, rather than actual damage. Priced reasonably due to these shortcomings

knapper, while side B retains a 40% flat section right up the center from the original
flake's form. It shows slight ancient nicking to both barb tips as well as to the bottom

RCCR10 A nice medium-sized (for type) red jasper Rabbit Island Arrowhead which is well flaked From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 30.00
on both faces, but which has a very nasty nick on side A which translated to a very nasty recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
gouge on side B. The surface shows good river polish, so the nick and gouge can most
likely be attributed to damage caused by floating along the Columbia River.

Arrowhead which was created on a flake, but which has thorough flaking patterns recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
on side A from an accomplished knapper. It retains a slight, 25% flat section on side
B from the original flake's surface and has an irregular form due to ancient damage
caused most likely by floating around in the river for eons (I hunt the Columbia River
myself, and I seldom find a point in this nice of a condition from that territory)

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
RCCR26 An ultra-thin and delicate Rabbit Island Arrowhead which was made on a colorful From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 50.00
green chert flake. It was created by an advance knapper who well understood the recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
fragile nature of the flake he was working with, so his knapping patterns left quite
a bit of the dark brown outer cortex of the host stone's surface, while he "danced
around" these sections with impressive flaking technique to reveal the much more
attractive, lime green interior sections of the host material.

Arrowhead which is thoroughly knapped on both faces by a very advanced recovered on the Columbia River in Oregon
knapper. The basal edge is flat, most likely by design where the ancient knappers left
an excess of material off of the base in order to have something to hold on to while
knapping smaller points, and then "snapped off" the excess from the basal stem once
the surface knapping was completed; this was a common practice in ancient times

RCCR46 An extremely tiny, thin and well-made gray mouse obsidian Wallula Gap Birdpoint From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 35.00
Arrowhead which is extremely well worked on both faces by a Master Knapper. It has found on the Columbia River in Oregon
the typical "snapped base" which most arrowheads of this size exhibit, most likely caused
by a longer stem used to hold items this small during the knapping process, where the final
step would be to "snap off" the excess. A real Gem of a point which is reasonably priced

Item: Type: Pinto Basin Sloping Shoulder Provenance: Price
RCCR48 A very nice, fairly meaty and slightly under-sized (for type) light gray chert/agate Pinto From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 75.00
Basin Sloping Shoulder Dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by an found on the Columbia River in Oregon
accomplished and advanced knapper with the exception of the hafting area on side B,
which was left flat, intentionally by it's creator in order to form a solid hafting "stop".
This ancient knapper definitely had his own unique "signature technique" and I wouldn't
be surprised if he was a teacher to others in his tribe in the ancient art of knapping.
A most fascinating artifact which well displays the ancient mindset for survival

RCCR49 An ultra-small and very delicate off-white chert Merrybell Birdpoint Arrowhead From an older collection assembled in the 1890's, 30.00
which is fairly well flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper. Even though it's found on the Columbia River in Oregon
pretty much "plain Jane" in it's color, it's a masterpiece with "knapping in
miniature" by the ancients and appears to be "all there" as it was originally created
