Details

This piece is in good condition. There is some minor bead loss and some staining. The quills have some general wear. The leather is soft around the ankles, the top, and the sides of the moccasins. The soles of the moccasins are stiff, as expected. The area where the hide separates from the sole at the heel is slightly stiff. The beadwork is sinew sewn. The quillwork is cotton sewn. The hide is deer. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona.
