Antique Woodland Paddle (Nova Scotia)

Here's another antique paddle showcased by Cisco's Gallery advertised as a "Native Carved Canoe Paddle" from Nova Scotia.

Item Number: M579
Native Carved Canoe Paddle
SIZE: 74" Blade 5"
PERIOD: First half 19th Century
ORIGIN: Nova Scotia, Canada

The upper portion of the blade features crudely carved initials...

For comparison, see the a similarly shape "Northeast Woodlands" paddle  found in the collection of The Museum Volkenkunde (National Museum of Ethnology) in the Netherlands.
