These moccasins are in very good condition. The leather is still soft and flexible. There are two lose strands of beadwork, and minor bead loss on the rim of one moccasin. Sinew and cotton sewn. On the left moccasin, there is a separation of the sole leather from the beaded leather. Acquired from a private collection in South Carolina. The owner had inherited these from his grandmother who visited her aunt in Oklahoma in the 1950s and had returned with this item. The inside of these moccasins are stuffed with newspaper that date back to 1962.
