Lakota Sioux Quilled & Beaded Pipe Bag Large c1875
Item Details
Description
This is an excellent, very large Indian hide, beaded and quilled pipe bag from the Lakota Sioux Native American Indians dating to the third-quarter of the 19th Century. This circa-1875 bag shows an Indian tanned hide construction sinew sewn with 1800’s period correct glass trade seed beads in a traditional geometric detailed pattern. The beadwork shows a greasy yellow background on one side and light blue background on the other, with overall geometric pattern on both sides in greasy blue, red white heart, faceted metal, semi-transparent rose, cobalt, medium green, and chalk white. The beadwork is across the bag opening fancy edge, down each side in a wide band vertically, and completely covering both sides of the bottom section. The bottom of the bag has flat parfleche rawhide fringes completely wrapped in porcupine quillwork, with natural pigment colors of red and natural cream. Just below the quillwork is thick Indian tanned hide fringe. One side of the bag shows two tapering arrow-like sections with four early rolled tin jingle dangle cones and red dyed plume feathers. Both sides have tie straps, with one having early rolled tin jingle dangle cones with dyed red plume feathers as well. The bag has very slight bead loss, but overall is well preserved; the rawhide parfleche quillwork has one separation and some quill loss and fading of color, but it is overall well preserved. The hide itself is slightly stiffening on the bag top and fringe, but still has a slight suppleness. One of the largest well-preserved examples we have offered from an outstanding pipe bag collection. Provenance: From a private museum collection in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region of France. The pipe bag measures 39” L by 6.5” W.
