1800s LAKOTA SIOUX PLAINS INDIAN HORN SPOON Theodore Kepner Long (1856-1947) #2:
What we have here is a Gorgeous Old circa 1800s item in the form of a Beautifully Crafted Native American Horn Spoon, likely Lakota Sioux Plains. Handle with carved and pierced finial is wrapped with blue quill and what appears to my eye to be sinew thread. Handle has hanging leather cords with red/orange quill wrapping with tips ended with deer toe ornaments, one deer toe with green dyed fiber coming out and some traces of green fiber on the other one. One deer toe with half loss. Measures 6 3/4 inches long by 3 inches wide. Stand not included in purchase. PROVENANCE: Collected by Theodore Kepner Long (1856 - 1947) and then by
gift to the Carson Long Military Academy. Raised in Millerstown (Pa.),
Long attended Yale Law School before relocating to North Dakota where he
became publisher of the Mandan Pioneer. He rose to prominence in the
legal profession becoming a States Attorney for lands West of the
Missouri River in 1885 and Attorney for N.P.R.R. Bismark North Dakota in
