I have been contacted by a curious buyer of this older miniature or sample paddle (below), 30" in length, asking whether I could be helpful in identifying its origin. Have to say that I am not really certain of its actual maker, although I do have some gut feelings. Just wondering whether anyone out there would care to offer some thoughts??? There do not appear to be any markings which would provide a clue. However, looking at the grip, with its flat top and triangular shape, it reminds me of pieces mad by Ark, and possibly Beaver; perhaps Indian Head. Any other suggestions???
