Large wooden canoe bailer which is rectangular with angled sides meeting to form a curved base. The base has a hole drilled across the curved sides and a piece of string inserted through it, possibly for hanging. The bailer appears to be well used. The bailer bears a label which reads H.Stadthagen, Indian Curio Museum, 79 Johnson Street, Victoria, B.C. Good


The original European tribal names and, where possible, current tribal names have both been given in separate GLT fields. The bailer mistakenly bears the label E 1910.20 which was originally assigned to a halibut hook. E 1910.18 which we now know is a canoe bailer was described in the Annual Report and Accession register for 1910 as a deep wooden bowl .; The bailer would have been used for bailing out canoes.; Exhibited: CUMAA old anthropological displays, case 34/35, dismantled 14081986.; Collected by: Glaisher.Dr.J.W.L in ?1907
