Item:

Type: Paleo Perforator

Provenance:

Price

SLFT3

I'm always amazed at the material this consignor provides to our 

Offered by the original

125.00

 

website, as he's supplied MANY unique, personal finds of his own

finder who recovered this

 

 

for others to enjoy and to own; this is one such unique piece. It's a   

one from the Alvord Desert

 

 

slender white chert bi-facially worked perforator and judging from

in Malheur County, OR

 

 

the location where it was recovered, I believe that it was made and

 

 

 

used in the same timeframe as the Paleo Crescents. Bargain priced

 

 

  for such an ancient and unique artifact.    

 

Era: Paleo - 10,500 - 11,000 years old

Type: Stemmed Drill

Provenance:

Price

SLFT4

A nice, snow white high grade chert/quartzite Stemmed Drill which is well

Offered by the original

40.00

 

flaked on both faces to a median ridge by a very advanced knapper. It has a

finder who recovered this

 

 

dig to the stem on the left side of side B (photo 4) and an inverted v-shaped

one from the Alvord Desert

 

 

ledge at the hafting line of side A (photo 2) where the host material resisted

in Malheur County, OR

 

 

the knapper's efforts. This one is "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

 

 

 

Era: Archaic period - est. 2300 to 3400 years old (at least, as this territory

 

 

 

was mostly Paleo country)
