Huon Gulf Lime Sticks

Huon Gulf Lime Sticks

Object Type: Lime spatula X 2

Locality: Inland Siassi island

Artist: Unknown

Circa: 1900

Description: This extremely rare pair of lime sticks come from the interior of Siassi Island. The body of the lime stick is made from incised bone and the blades made from turtle shell. The only other one I have seen is at the Pitt rivers museum and was collected in 1903. This pair would be of a similar vintage but have a better Patina from extended indigenous use.
