Date 1885 ca.-1911 ca.
Description Wooden oar head with tip made of bone. It appears that the head was assembled by connecting two pieces of wood together and then attaching the bone tip (which is attached with iron nails). The end that would attach to the handle is very narrow and it gets wider until nearing the tip. The oar head is slightly bowed by design.
