Penobscot style paddles and snowshoe frame canoe seat.

A recent listing on LiveAuctioneers.com featured two vintage paddles and a snowshoe style folding canoe seat.


The shorter paddles has a classic Penobscot style stepped grip The longer paddle has some visible signs of warping in the shaft but otherwise seems sounds.


Closeup of the short painted paddle shows the blade has split, a very common feature with old maple paddles, but has undergone some sort of repair with large metal fastenings (bent nails?) holding the pieces together.


Unfortunately no dimensional info is given.
