Rattle Northwest Coast
Rattle Northwest CoastThis hand carved Rattle hails from the Northwest Coast! Believed to have been carved circa 1980s, the design is reminiscent of rattles used by the Haida, Tsimshian, and Tlingit people. The craftsman carved this rattle from two pieces of cedar. The two halves are held together with wooden pegs. The eyes are carved and painted. The craftsman painted the face red, green, and black with exaggerated features including a mustache, goatee, and stuck-out tongue.
This rattle is in excellent condition. The paint has not worn off or chipped. Its handle is 4 3/8" long, and measures approximately 11" long overall.
One of a Kind!
