This is an absolutely stunning, hands-down original Indian Pipe Hawk, and the best I've seen on the market in many years. It is in beautiful patinaed finish and I can't express how wonderfull it is. It dates from 1850 - 1880 with a ton of character and just a glance tells the onlooker that it is 100% original and of the period, not a fixed-up or faked turn-of-the-century souvenir. This is the real deal and and we were lucky to acquire this through another dealer whose customer was upgrading to an earlier Eastern Hawk close to the 6-figure range. This Hawk is much more beautiful than the photos show.
