Native American Carved Wood Funnel 19th Century
Judging from the decorative carving in this wonderful, early Native American funnel, this may be Navajo. Primitively terraced diamonds surround the cup with a repeat of the same interspersed with a "Y" pattern around the nozzle. What we love most is the early "fix" to an age crack ~ a large metal staple. 8"H X 6" X 6 1/2" at base. Out of round cup due to age and exposure; mild, albeit interesting, wear patterns due to normal use.
