1900's Apache Beaded & Fringed Bag
We are offering an antique circa 1900 Apache Indian pouch, thread sewn on hide, slightly tapered rectangular shaped form beaded on both sides, each with a cross within stepped diamond patterns accented with geometric compliments. Multicolor beads include whiteheart red, light blue, dark blue, transluscent and opaque yellow, white, light green, pink, black and chartreuse. The bag itself measures 9" x 6 1/4" at the widest, with an additional 6" length of fringe, for a total length of 15". In very good condition. All original, no alterations or repairs. The fields on both sides appear to be complete and intact. The hide is soft and supple, no stiffness; no rips, tears or holes. The drawstring is whole and undamaged. Very solid overall.
