Product Description

DOUBLE HICKORY NUTTING BOWL WITH HICKORY NUTS, PERSONAL FIND, ARKANSAS
IN THE SOUTHERN AND WARMER CLIMATE STATES WE HAVE A TREE THAT PRODUCES A HICKORY NUT. THIS NUT WAS A PRINCIPLE SOURCE OF FOOD FOR THE INDIANS IN PRE-FARMING TIME. TODAY SOME PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH STILL COLLECT AND HARVEST THE HICKORY NUT TO MAKE CAKE OR JUST TO EAT RAW LIKE A PECAN. THE FALL OF THE YEAR IS THE SEASON TO EAT THE DELICIOUS NUTS.

THE HICKORY NUT BOWL WAS IMPORTANT AS A TOOL TO CRACK THE HARD OUTER SHELL TO GET TO THE MEAT. YOU WOULD FIND A LARGE BOWL IN THE FAMILY ENCAMPMENT. SOMETIME WITH MULTIPLE BOWLS ON ONE SIDE. THE HUNTER TOOK A SMALL ONE WITH HIM ON THE HUNT AS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF HIS EQUIPMENT AND DEPENDED ON THE HICKORY NUT TREE TO SUPPLY HIM WITH A MAJOR SOURCE OF NATURES FOOD SUPPLY. THIS NUTTING BOWL HAS A NICE BOWL IN THE CENTER OF THE STONE ON BOTH SIDES. IT IS APPROXIMATELY 3.OO" X 2.25" TALL. IT IS 1.50" THICK. THE PATINA IS STILL INTACT AND IT IS MADE OF NATIVE STONE. I AM INCLUDING ONE HICKORY NUT EACH WITH AND WITHOUT THE HULL. IT IS A LOCAL PERSONAL FIND IN JOHNSON COUNTY, ARKANSAS. I CONSIDER IT TO BE 4,000+ YEARS OLD. THIS ONE WAS CARRIED BY THE HUNTER IS HIS POSSIBLE BAG.

A MUSUEM FILE CARD WILL BE PROVIDED WITH THIS INDIAN ARTIFACT. YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED.
