Horn Scrimshaw Cherokee Native American , c1810

Horn Scrimshaw Cherokee Native American , c1810 Horn  scrimshaw Native American %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
Unusual early 19th century horn scrimshaw, with Native American interest, c1810. From the size of the horn we would say it is either mountain goat or antelope. The scrimshaw is nicely inscribed but the first word has rubbed/faded and is difficult to read. After some research we believe it says 'Tahchee' or the misspelling 'Tachee'. 'Tahchee' was a Cherokee chief (1790 -1843 ) native to Arkansas and Texas who was also known as Dutch. This makes sense as the remainder of the inscription reads 'called Dutch Cherokee'. This leads us to believe it is an American piece either by a Native American or sailor with some connection/knowledge of this Cherokee Chief. There is also an inscribed picture of a native American / frontiersman in traditional dress. This has rubbed/faded a little but is still visible. There is a small loss to the end of the horn but overall condition is good and as you would expect from a piece of this age. An interesting item capturing a piece of social history. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to view the item.
