A few Old Original Native American, collectibles
 Arrowheads, Bird Points, Hopi Pottery, and More






Rare Collection of  102 Arrowheads, Bird Points & Blades

  A 102 piece group of 100% original high quality Native American bird points and arrowheads that were collected by my dad prior to 1959.  At one time he had an amazing collection of artifacts, including rare items from the well known Kohlberg's antiques and from old Jim Savage of Trinidad Colorado in the 50's. Some of these points may have come from the Savage collection in the 1950' or 60's.
 The bird points are mostly plains side notch type but also some desert region and many other interesting types.

They are beautifully made examples of points, most have excellent symmetry and style.  There are 55 bird points in this group, most are in excellent condition. Some have older hand written reference numbers on them. I don't know if my dad numbered them or if they were numbered when he acquired them. I have no reference for the numbers. Each one of these points is a unique and beautiful work of functional art made by skilled people who were amazing artists that lived long before any of us.  These points are true art and real history!    

(102 Pieces in total) $800.

Sold as a group only!  All 102 pieces for $800.

Averaging less than $10. per item, this is a true bargain for such an amazing group of  points. It would be hard to find a finer large group of original points at this price!  

 Old Original Native American Pottery

  I've had this piece of Hopi pottery since the 1960s when my mom gave it to me. She likely got it from Erich Kohlberg when she worked at Kohlberg's Antiques. My mom did sales, research and some restoration. Mr Kohlberg sometimes gave her things that could not be restored and didn't meet the store's high standards. Mr. and Mrs. Kohlberg had a world wide reputation as well respected dealers of rare unique and quality antiques and Native American artifacts. It may not have been all that desirable to the Kohlbergs at the time. I've always admired the artistic beauty and the mystery of this great old Native American piece and often wondered about the person who made it.

  It's about 4 1/4 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches wide. It has some scuffs and chips but is such an attractive design with birds and an Owl?  I'm getting old and need to find a loving home for this beautiful old piece with lots of character.  I admire the wonderful artist who made this unique pottery, even though they are unknown to me.   A  wonderful old piece!     $350.

Northern Native American

Satin pouch or bag from the Montagnais tribe of Quebec
Provenance: George A Cuneo, Denver Art Museum, Erich Kohlberg,

It Comes with the original inventory catalog card from the Denver Art Museum showing that it had been placed on loan indefinitely to on April 25 1937.  It was one of hundreds of pieces that Denver Art Museum received as part of the George A Cuneo Native American artifact collection. On the reverse side of the catalog card is a watercolor painting of the pouch.  George A Cuneo died in 1939 and later.
Erich Kohlberg bought this piece and more from the museum, and my mom got this pouch from Mr. Kohlberg sometime in the 1960's. Kohlberg's Antiques opened in Denver around 1871 by Erich Kohlberg's uncle as one of Denver's first curio shops.  
Made of blue, brown, black, and red satin with a cream colored lining and gold ribbon tie string. The bottom section is made of 4 pieces, (Black), (Black with red dots), (blue with flower design) and a (burgundy- brown color.) The brown fabric is very frayed from top to bottom, the rest is in very good condition. Very clean inside. It's about 6 ½ inches tall. The photos tell more than I can. It comes with the display box and the Denver Art Museum catalog card, which it has been in since mom got it.  A very interesting and attractive piece with provenance of two well known early Denver collectors of old Native American artifacts.

 Controversial collector George A. Cuneo was born about 1852. He knew Red Cloud and Buffalo Bill and had his own odd history. It's now known that in the 1870s and 1880s Cuneo had acquired relics directly from the soldiers who had personally taken souvenirs.  Sometimes they took things during raids and in battles, including scalps! Very sad history that is well documented!  

Cuneo died in 1939 but the relics from the Cuneo collection have become historic, valued and appreciated additions to collections world wide.  
A link to an article about George Cuneo showing a circa 1930 photo of part of his collection. Bones of contention

I wish I knew more about it's origins.  A unique an interesting piece with provenance.  $350. Free Shipping in USA.
