Comb, North West Coast

North West Coast
Wood and pigment
6” Tall x 2 3/4” Wide
Circa 1940’s

Depicting a bear over a frog. We especially like the clever way the canine teeth are stylistically carved. In the typical North West Coast traditional colors of red and black. This piece appears to be by the same hand as another comb in our collection. That comb has a tag attached, from Ye Olde Curiosity Shop in Seattle, Washington with a price of $6.50!  Those were the days.
