Myra Emerson Moose Carving Paddle

LiveAuctioneers has another, unique paddle up for sale. It has long, elegant lines reminiscient of Maliseet style paddles and a short but shapely grip with an etching of a moose. The title page says it was made by Myra Emerson. Some snooping on google search revealed that she was a resident of Maine who lived between 1878 - 1945.

Unfortunately there is no info on dimensions, but the closeup picture of the grip shows some fingers grasping the paddle to give an idea of scale. Assuming she made this paddle for herself, it would explain the smaller, compact size.
