1890s Santee Sioux Indian Beaded Slender Tobacco Bag Sinew Sewn On Hide 20" x 5"
We are offering an antique circa 1890's Santee Sioux Indian beaded tobacco bag, sinew sewn on deer hide, slender form beaded on both sides with a framed star and floral pattern. Multicolor beads include butterscotch, dark blue, pale blue, turquoise, green, silver, black and opaque. Measures 20" x 5". In excellent condition. All original, no alterations or repairs. There is minimal bead loss to a couple of areas and a light smudge of red to the bottom just above the fringe on one side - barely worth mentioning but for accuracy's sake. The hide is soft and supple, no stiffness. Very solid overall.
