Antique Model Paddles

A very interesting post on the Cherry Gallery's current items (March 2010) page...
Seth Steward Model Canoe Paddles
This is a pair of model canoe paddles made and painted by renowned Maine artist Seth W. Steward (1844-1927) of Monson. One paddle is decorated with a painting of a brook trout chasing a fly on the blade and a canoe on the handle. The other has a painting of a moose on the blade and a rifle on the handle. These are the longest Steward model paddles that we've seen.

Dated 1901
5.5" w, 45" long
