Captivating, yet simple, this Beaver measures 7″ L x appx 3″ W (see images to hand work) and has a 34″ circumference beaded necklace of stunning glass Indian Trade beads, matched in color along each of the two 17″ sides of the necklace string. Original twine as well and as shown. The Beaver has the HB mark on its back and towards the tail appears to be three hallmarks please see close up image, will research and add more info as found on hallmarks… One is a crown… Others as shown thus far! There is minimal tarnish as shown above and none underneath. There are no bends, dents, cracks, breaks etc to the Beaver… Just normal wear but considering its age… The beads are worn as they should be, showing age and us… The color combination on this necklace is magnificent, and highly attractive as shown. Mounted in a glass top casing that someone lined to display this fabulous historical beauty. Pins to the side of the case pull out easily for access to the necklace. Case measures 16.25 x 12.25 inches and is 1 deep. I know little of this type of item, but fell in love once I saw this in searching for collectible treasures and have leaned quite a bit through researching the Hudson Bay Company. I suspect this Beaver ranks right up there in the Hudson Bay collectible effigy necklaces… Find it very exciting to have found such an unusual Native American piece… Especially as this Beaver is just not often found anywhere other than in a museum and perhaps in a few prized collection… I know no history on this particular piece other than I was mesmerized by it, its history and had to get it to pass along to a even more appreciative individual… Fully guarantee it is authentic… There is not doubt of its origin and age. Any information out there would be much appreciated and pass along..
