Customer Question
I am researching some...

I am researching some American Indian artifacts for a friend and there is a very beautiful flute that is signed and I cannot locate who this signature belongs to.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It looks like a capital letter A crossing a capital letter D,

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It has a wooden shape on top and an Indian arrowhed on top. It also has rows of leather ties and brass beads and on the ends there are beautiful white bird feathers,.
