$50,000 and up

At the Peter Brams Collection of Important Woodlands Indian Art auction on Tuesday, the three items pictured here each sold for $50,000 and higher (before the house fee). The first two photos show the Thompson Family seated human effigy feast ladle, Algonquian, first half 18th century. The ladle was found decades ago in the basement of the Alexander Thompson homestead in Thompson Ridge, Orange County, N.Y. Hammer price: $55,000. The maple burl effigy bowl, Sauk-Fox/Mesquikie, circa 1820, 4 inches high, 13 1/8 inches in diameter, sold for $50,000. The figured maple lynx/bobcat effigy ladle, shown in the last two photos, Great Lakes, circa 1780, sold for $72,500. All information gleaned from the Keno Auctions online catalog.
