condition: fair
This is a vintage folk art totem pole, offered as a donation for a non-profit and for a modest cost for private collectors. My mother purchased it from a Channel Thirteen auction in 1977. It stood in our backyard, and then indoors as the photos demonstrate. It's big and chunky and weather beaten but still great. Height is 112", circumference is about 62", diameter of the pole and the custom steel stand is about 20". The ladder in some of the photos is 6 feet tall.

I believe this piece should be considered folk art rather than authentic Native American. Its value is in its artistry, its charm, and its patina.

It is currently horizontal, on dollies, at ground level, in a garage.

Please reach out for questions or additional images. Fair offers are welcomed.
