Antique Paddles from the Cherry Gallery
The set includes some interesting Northwoods style paddles with elongated grips. In particular the largest paddle on the far left has a grip shape reminiscient of the grey painted Penobscot paddle sold by Summer Antiques in Lake Placid, New York.
The painted red paddle has in interesting sculpted grip shape and while I'm not a big fan of painted paddles, this one stands out for whatever reason. A few feature some interesting etchings and pyrography and the tiny dark paddle (3rd from right) has a spherical grip very similar to basic Adirondack Guide paddles.
For those in the area, this might be an fascinating event to check out. Here's some additional info from their site.
