Offered is a stunning early to mid- 20th Century Minnesota Native American-made (Anishinaabe/Chippewa/Ojibwe) Floral beaded bag on a black cloth. It has matching designs on both sides along with the scalloped edge in mustard yellow and white beads.
This measures 7" by 9", not including the bead tassel on bottom. Don't know the date of that sale. The previous owners dated it to the early 1900s.I'm not sure it is that old. The condition is unbelievable for that age. If someone kept it in a display case, perhaps, but the large bead on the bottom looks more modern than ca. No damage to the fabric. An amazing and beautiful double-sided piece.
I will send it in a box in a flat rate padded envelope. Most of the items we sell come from our personal collection gathered over the years from our travels, from Native powwows and craft stores, antique shops, auctions and estate sales.Now that our kids are in college and beyond, we are letting some items go so others can enjoy them. Then I'll send you a combined invoice. Sorry for the expense, but I've had items lost overseas when mailing first class and don't want to take the risk of losing items. I pack carefully and try to reuse materials to save on environmental impact. I often double-box items with smaller gift boxes collected from various thrift stores.
I reuse all that I receive and hope you will make use of the ones that come in your packages. The item "Early Anishinaabe Chippewa Indian Beaded Drawstring Purse Native American Minn" is in sale since Sunday, June 27, 2021.
