Burl Canoe Cup with Horse Painting

Small burl canoe cup with a hand-painted horse. 3 ½" L x 2 1/8" W x apprx. 1 ¾" H. Very unusual subject for a canoe cup, but quite attractive. Probably maple. There is an old split in the end of the handle extending into the belt strap hole and a previous owner replaced the belt strap with a rawhide thong which is too large and probably should be removed. Circa probably early 20th century. (CI-9)
