Gunstock club. Wood carved in shape of gun stock and decorated with small marks etched all over, and brass tacks in the center of the base of the stock on one side, and a carving of an otter (5"l) with two small metal points as eyes on the opposite.
Metal blade set into the elbow - 3 ¾"L and 1 ½"W - seems hand forged w/ the textured appearance. Hole drilled through in the top of the stock that has tanned hide strip pulled through and a piece of red wool cloth attached - 20"L, 4"W - side have been cut jagged and 5 small diamond holes cut through on bottom edge. Three (3) silver domes, striated Conchos are attached to wool, and tied through with leather strips. Attached on a string to the top of this piece is single leather string with 1 turquoise blue round bead, and 1 brass bead. A strand of horsehair is tied on to a separate leather strip.
Five (5) inches down from the top of the stock another hole has been drilled through and a piece of leather strip tied through with white and turquoise colored glass disk shaped beads and brass beads; one side has a bird - possible hawk - feather attached with a red dyed feather.
Other side of the same strand has strips of glass beads, turquoise, brass and white like others, green tube beads, and whole stand of multicolored Venetian beads. A secondary strip from this bunch is red quill wrapped with two (2) red horsehair tufts inside tin cones.
