Cliff Bauer Page. Found a few more from Cliff's collection


Stunning Ohio Bevel (Thebes) - #8-1

Size: 2 1/4" long x 1 3/8" w

Provenance: Found at the long ago bulldozed Old Folk's Home of Circleville, Pickaway County, Ohio. Cliff Bauer purchased this piece and a small lot that included the now famous double notched dovetail. Cliff Bauer purchased collection on 4/11/1953 for $5 from Carl Ott, whose father was the farm superintendent at the home.

Condition: Super. One ear has a minor clip. Material is an 11. Brilliant Flint Ridge with an overall patina that makes learned collectors drool. Workmanship is better than outstanding with fine flaking forming a twisted bevel. No need to say anymore.

Price: $500


Highly Serrated Notched base Dovetail - #8-2

Size: 2 3/4" Long x 1 5/8" Wide.

Provenance: Found in Darbydale, Pleasant Township, Franklin County, Ohio by R. Boggs. #33 in Cliff Bauer collection that was purchased 12/4/1950.

Condtion: Excellent. Both ears are clipped in a symetrical manner. Highly beveled, but I still think dovetail over thebes due to the close to classic dovetail notched base. In terms of serrations, this piece has just about the best I have seen. They are large and skillfully constructed to taper off towards the tip. Cliff calls it "a very fine example of bevel type"

Crooksville Chert Deep Notch - #8-5

Size: 2 3/4" long x 2" Wide.

Provenance: Ohio. Un-catalogued in Cliff Bauer collection.

Condition: Good. One clipped ear away from being an Ohio classic. I don't know Crooksville Chert well, but feel pretty confident in call on material. Highly translucent. Is Crooksville translucent. Color is stunning, and wonderful. Super rare type that some call an Ohio Lost Lake. I prefer deep notch. Early Archaic fine workmanship. Someone should restore ear.




Paleo Lance - #8-6

Provenance: Personal Find of Cliff Bauer on 10/30/1956.

Stemmed Lance - #8-7

Size: 4 9/16" Long x 1 7/16" Wide.
