Vintage Yakima Indian Beaded Eagle Carrying Banner Reading "Toppenish" Flat Bag
We are offering a vintage early 20th century Yakima Indian beaded flat bag with the colorful image of an eagle with wings spread carrying a banner reading "Toppenish". Finely and beautifully crafted in beads of light and dark brown, white, cobalt blue and red on a turquoise field with dark cobalt blue border, complimented with 13 dangles of coral, clear, delphite blue and opalescent beads. Backed with hide and fully lined inside with a cotton print fabric. Retains old collection tag as seen in photo #8. In excellent original condition, completely intact handles, fully lined. No bead loss, no tears or rips, no stains. Very well cared for. Slight age discoloration and light age wear to top of fabric trim at the opening - barely worth mentioning but for accuracy's sake. Please study the photos as they are a part of the description. Measures approximately 8 3/4" x 19" overall.
