Product Description

NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN DOUBLE BOWL HICKORY NUT WORK TOOL WITH HICKORY NUTS, NE GEORGIA
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 ONE SIDE AND A LESS USED ON ON THE OTHER SIDE. THIS TOOL IS ROUNDED ON ALL EDGES AND FLAT ON BOTH SIDES.IT IS APPROXIMATELY 4.00" WIDE, 3.00" TALL AND 1.25" THICK. THE PATINA IS STILL INTACT. I AM INCLUDING HICKORY NUTS WITH THIS BOWL. IT WAS FOUND BY TOMMY WATSON IN NE GEORGIA. THIS TYPE OF ARTIFACT IS VERY OLD.
