Description

Interior spiral shell sections have been cut away from a very large conch shell to make a hollow container. There are three small perforations drilled in the body of the shell and one small hole at the larger end of the item. There are some encrustations adhering to both interior and exterior surfaces. The shell is white, very pale brown and light brownish gray in color. It may have been used as a dipper. Item was excavated from the Raymond J. Ater Mound in Concord Township, Ross County, Ohio.
