This item is a rare piece of pictorial bead-work of an eagle with outstretched wings, grasping an arrow with a spray of flowers, possibly stylized roses. It is in pristine condition in it's original frame and has been protected under glass, probably most of its lifetime. Though I have not removed it from its frame to examine it from its back, it appears to me to be a sample of Native American bead-work, possibly of the Tuscarora (Haudenosaunee or Iroquois) tribe though I do not have direct knowledge of this item's provenance or origins except for the few tidbits of information on the back of the frame which do not indicate its maker(s). It is a stunning piece which will appeal to those interested in Americana, Native American artwork of this nature and/or American folk art. It is striking in its simplicity and bold design yet sophisticated in its colors and quality of workmanship.

It's black and guilt frame with gilt mat measures 11 1/2" tall X 10" wide. The actual visible bead-work measures 9" tall X 7 1/2" wide (I don't know if there is beadwork behind the mat)

Some of the beads are slightly bigger than the others: the turquoise beads appear slightly larger than the black and white beads, Some of the beads are "faceted" such as some of the red, black and white beads. The arrow tip appears to be made with faceted beads that are metallic- perhaps brass.

As most experienced buyers of vintage and antique items will know, most objects have some signs of wear and use if you look very closely. I am vary careful to photograph and describe any of these condition issues in the listing.

Some items have some imperfections that have always been with the object- they were created or manufactured that way! I try to point these issues out as well.

If you have any questions- just inquire. I will try to clarify any of these issues for you.

Thank you!
I am willing to make special arrangements to ship most items internationally providing that it is legal to do so and that the buyer is willing and able to communicate with me so I can make those arrangements. Though I can understand and can communicate in many languages, I prefer you have a good understanding of English in order to understand the subtleties and details in making these arrangements. Sometimes the procedure is simple but sometimes more complex.

Most importantly, I ask that the buyer be fully aware that shipping and customs procedures may take up to several weeks and agree to that situation before making the purchase and my making the special arrangements.
I will be happy to combine the shipping of multiple purchases when possible. Some larger or more fragile items may have to be shipped separately to insure they arrive in good condition. If you have any questions just contact me for more information.
