Here's the last of the five points we have on consignment from the Rhonda Beck collection (RXB16).

The Tennessee River is an Early Archaic point dating c.7000-4000BC...

$900.00
Almost exactly one foot tall, this ancient Egyptian red ware, wide-mouthed jar (102.68HD) is intact and in overall good condition.

None of the foregoing affects the stability or decorative quality of this la...
