The Consummate Collector
Jonny, That is the best collection of old Indian artifacts that I have ever seen. Very nice display and it's amazing that you and your family found all of them.Mine is slightly different. With the exception of a few, everything shown was found by my parents and myself when I was about 10 to 15 years old. At that time there were still small farms owned by local people, and in the spring after the fields were plowed we would wait on a good rain and walk the fields row by row. Everything is authentic except the arrow shown in the top of the case and the obsidian knife below it, and a few odds and ends like the fossils, A Civil War "bullet in wood", and a tiny Almanac for 1886.
The oldest piece is between 8 and 10 thousand years old.

I think you may be right. The dark colored facsimile pegs are in the exact same places. Of course my displays can't equal the high quality of yours. My table has 3 shallow drawers including the top with a velvet flock covered cardboard liner for the display. They slide out from either side. The bottom one has an oval brass plate on an inside surface with somebody's signature--maybe the designer or maker which I can't quite make out---something like Bob Lim?????. I've had it for at least 20 years. Back then, one couldn't walk into a furniture store with out tripping over examples of these display tables in all sizes and types of wood.forward_observer, Looks like we have the same brand of coffee table. Nice job on your displays. I can't decide which one I like best but that's the fun of having a display table as the displays can keep changing.
