Plateau Beaded Bag, 19th Century

Item #: 622
Origin: Plateau
Date: 19th Century
Media: Glass beads, fabric, leather

Dimensions: 11″ tall, 9.5″ wide
Description: This bag has a great presence about it.  The symmetrical floral display in early beads, all executed in the contour style, contributes to an earlier age likely around 1870.  The double, yellow cross on the far side is an added element of surprise.  No restoration to the front beaded panel, other than tacking down a few lines of beads.  However, the original backing was gone and that has been replaced.

Price: $2800
