We've had so much interest in our latest work we're trying something new. Going to auction one our pieces by Iron John Logan, on our Facebook page Thanksgiving weekend 2022. Auction was a success - we will definitely be doing more of these!
Description of item:
Brass trade tomahawk, smokeable by artist Iron John Logan. Imported cast brass head with dovetailed steel bit. As the originals this head was mass produced and imported to be handled and fitted at a frontier shop. It arrived in the ruff from the foundry with the bit installed with traces of the floral engraving peeking through. Copious filing and reshaping brought its curves more in line with original tomahawks of the type. Age patina and a splash of historic "Japanning" paint hot set to the surfaces, polished and worn. White wood handle is affixed to the head with a gasket of fringed buckskin and is drilled for smoking. The handle is pierced with an iron wire sporting brass pony beads, glass trade beads, and buckskin tassels. Measures 8in by 19in Age and patina by artist, signed and dated Iron John Logan 2022
Auction will run from Noon Thursday 11/24 (Thanksgiving Day US) to Noon Monday 11/28 2022 eastern standard time
