Cheyenne Beaded and Leather Tobacco Bag with Quillwork c. 1890s, 21" x 6.5" (DW91963-0520-007)
- Circa: 1890s
- Size: 21'' x 6.5''
Sinew and cotton sewn. 31" length with fringe, 21" x 6.5" bag. This item is in very good condition. There is very minor beadloss near the top of the bag. The leather has some slight wear, but there is still some flexibility to the leather. There are areas of the leather that are stiff or near stiff, but overall, the leather is still very good condition. There are no breaks at the top section of the fringe, so there are no missing strands. However, there are four strands that do have breaks halfway down, so they are simply just a bit shorter than the rest of the fringe. Acquired from a private collection Virginia.
