I found a frame of Cliff Bauer Relics. All items on this page are from the Bauer collection.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Beautiful Ohio Side Notch - #8-1

Size: 3" long x 1 3/16" w

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Ohio.

Condition: Super. Not calling this Big Sandy. I think it is uniquely Ohio enough to call it an Ohio Side Notch. Great patina over Coshocton. Rare to see it go white.

Price: $125

 

Paleo Blade - #8-2

Size: 4" Long x 2 1/4" Wide.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer collection. Ohio.

Condtion: Excellent. A few dings along the way. The whole piece is twisted in two different directions. I see the workmanship as clearly Paleo, even if pics don't do a great job of showing it. Very interesting that the piece of flint fractured "roughly", note the texture of the surface. I don't think I have ever seen this from Mercer Flint before.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Fluted Blade - #8-3

Size: 3 3/16" L x 1 1/16" W.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer collection. Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. The color really pops in the pictures. If this isn't Clovis man at work, I don't know what is. Backside is mostly unifaced with some fine edgework. Top side represents a long fluted area. The tip end is made thick and sturdy, with the overally thickness decreasing towards the base. The whole piece also turns upward so that when resting on a table, the tip rests 1/2" above the surface

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Flint Ridge Adena - #8-4

Size: 2 5/16" L x 1 7/16" W.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer collection. Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. A ear is nipped. Some of the wildest coloration I have seen in Flint Ridge Chalcedony. Most is ice blue, sometimes it is pink, but I have never seen green/orange combinations. Bauer had one of the best eyes for great flint. Even a little point like this one is a testament to his deep understanding of flint art.

Price: $150

 

2 Restored Ohio Bevels - #8-5

Size: Left example is 2 1/2" long.

Provenance: Ohio. Cliff Bauer Collection.

Condition: Restored. One ear on the left side example. This piece is stunning in it's construction and bevel. Right side has both ears restored.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

 

Flint Ridge Adena - #8-6

Size: 2 5/16" long x 1 3/8" wide.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Base is fractured straight across. I have to think this was purposeful. Nice color and a more dart point form than typical Adena knives.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

8 Triangles - #8-7

Size: Super example on the upper left is 1 3/16"

Provenance: Ohio. Cliff Bauer Collection.

Condition: Varies. Multiple really great examples.

Price: $40

 

Bauer's Last Arrowhead - #8-7

Size: 3 1/4" long x 1 5/8" wide.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer collection. No find info in catalog.

Condition: Excellent. I hit on it below, but this is the last point Bauer ever purchased. The year was 1974, and 16 years after he purchased the second to last point. My thought is that this is probably a Deep South piece. I don't know the material. Own a piece of history.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

Very interesting that this was the first point Bauer purchased after his move to Louisiana. Last artifact purchased in Ohio 1958. First and last purchased in LA 1974.

 

Bird Point - #8-8

Size: 1 7/8" long x 7/8" wide.

Provenance: Bauer Collection.

Condition: Super. Bigger and nicer than most bird points. This piece was on a board with several examples from Missouri and Illinois.

Price: $10

 

4 points - $10 each - #8-9

Size: Far left 1 11/16" long.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Ohio

Condition: Excellent. All are very solid $10 pieces. Get all 4 for $35 or $10 each.

Price: $ see condition report.

 

Group of Colorful Bird Points - #8-10

Size: Far Left Side 1 1/2" Long.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Ohio.

Condition: Varies. Great colors and material in the group.

Price: $30

 

Flint Ridge Hopewell - #8-11

Size: 1 13/16" long x 1 3/8" wide

Provenance: Cliff Bauer collection. Ohio.

Condition: Good. This point had a long life. Judging by the size of the base, it started life as a giant blade. Edges are almost beveled, which you rarely ever see in Woodland pieces. The patina is just so right for old Flint Ridge that the piece is worth collecting just for that reason.

Price: $40

 

Paleo Blade - #8-12

Price: 2 15/16" L x 1 5/8" wide.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer collection. Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Classic for Paleo blades. I love the 45 degree base flake, multiple useful edges, and overall curve to the piece. I think this is 4 Mile Creek Chert.

Price: $40

 

Stemmed Lance - #8-13

Size: 2 3/4" long x 1" wide.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Just looked up find location. Found on the Hoddy Farm. Exact location and catalog page to buyer.

Condition: Excellent. Late Paleo era lance with enough of a stem to term it a Stemmed Lance. Delaware Chert, which is a favorite of the culture.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Thin Kirk with snapped base - #8-14

Size: 2 3/8" long x 1 7/16" wide.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Ohio. Went through Bauer catalog this morning, and found this piece. It is a personal find of CLiff on 3/29/55 and found on Flint Ridge. See who notices first.

Condition: Excellent. I would call the base broken, others call it a snapped base. The piece exhibits the super fine workmanship that Early Archaic collectors come to love.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>
