53cm long. A US Springfield rifle that made its way over to the Haida. US stamped on the butt plate. Possibly an 1855 model M1855 Springfield Carbine


Carved with a raven head and a running/crouching bear, it must have later broken whilst in the Haidas possession, the stock now only remaining. Applied leather wrap.

A carved rifle stock. Haida, North West Coast. Mid-late 19th C.
