Here's an update on the set of painted maple canoe dated to the 1860's first posted about here.

Turns out these paddle were part of Sotheby's  New York auction Important American Indian Art. Lot 726 of their May 19th, 1998 event listed a black and white photo of  “A Pair of Painted Wood Oars, Probably Lorette-Huron.”
