3 JOHN WILLIAMS native american indian totem pole carving vtg seattle art statue
In the 1880s the Williams’ were among the first artists to canoe down from Canada and sell their craft to the early Seattle curio shops. We are offering three (3) pieces by John T. The 1st totem is John’s earliest known work. Carved by a 10 year old boy (4th grader), it remained in the store owner’s possession for 41 years. The Silver Belle closed in 1980 (35yrs ago). John carved the 2nd totem in 1972 (he was 12). This totem also came out of the Silver Belle Estate. John brightly painted this totem and it measures about 15 3/4 tall. The store owner must have recognized the importance of this young carver because even though the totem was inventoried, and publically displayed in her store, it was NFS (not for sale). Or, a more likely scenario is that (beaming with pride) the 12yr old twinkle-eyed little boy gave his creation to the female store owner as a gift? We found the 3rd totem on the Kitsap Peninsula. It measures 8 1/4 tall and he carved it between the years of 1980 & 1990, while he was in his 20s and in his prime. NOTE : A well-respected leading expert on Pacific Northwest totems has contacted us and believes the smaller totem was actually carved by John’s brother, Stacey. It is our understanding that during the 1980s-90s the two brothers worked in tandum, carving and signing each others pieces. In this case Stacey probably carved it and John took it to a shop to sell? The shop owner wanted it signed so John quickly carved his name on the back. At least that’s the theory! He also confirmed, after speaking with the Williams family, that the Williams’ had a business relationship with The Silver Belle Art Gallery (closed in 1980). A five pound sterling silver ” Bug Basket ” from Buckingham Palace, the most-prized possession of the last reigning monarch of The Kingdom of Hawai’i, an artifact from The White House and Porcellian Club (the birthplace of Facebook), the first man to the moon’s 1st appearance in Space, an authentic Witch coven’s serving charger and an 1885 New York City “Sitting Bull” Cigar Store Indian are but a few of our most interesting pieces.
