Bonhams to Present Single-Owner Collection of Native American ArtifactsOct 26, 2022 10:00 PDT - Oct 27, 2022 10:00 PDT
The most unifying factor of this upcoming single-owner auction of Native American artifacts, offered by Bonhams, is the interests of the featured collector, Roy H. Robinson. Though Robinson and his family were established residents of New Mexico, his collection highlights the artistry of Native peoples across the country. This includes a diverse selection of weavings such as a group of twined bags by the people of the Great Lakes region, several early finger-woven sashes from the Eastern Woodlands, and over 100 weavings from the American Southwest.
Additional lots of note from the sale include a Lakota fully beaded dress that was likely once worn by Jenny Yellow Elk Woman; a Diné classic child’s serape with cream, indigo blue, and lac-dyed red yarns; and a Flathead spontoon tomahawk with beaded drop attributed to Many Bears. Collectors can also consider illustrated drawing books, examples of Lakota and Apsáalooke beadwork, historic pottery and jewelry, moccasins, dolls, pipes, bowls, musical instruments, and weapons. View any of these lots and register to bid by visiting Bonhams.
