c.1850-1890s CREE Moose Hide Pouch with Beadwork ANTIQUE First Nations Native American Tribal Art

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Exquisite antique Cree moose hide bag with colorful beadwork on the front and back. The glass beads are quite early and not very uniform in size and shape, the colors too are unusual : orange, red, mint green, navy blue and pink. Made in Canada circa 1850-1890, likely made for the French fur trapper market rather than use by the tribe. Lined in a green silk that is faded in places, and the silk is starting to disintegrate at the edges (totally in keeping with its age). The bag has a large green smudge on one side of the handle, but all the beads and beadwork are in tact.
7" inches across
11" inches long (including fringe)

Additional questions welcome!
