Cheyenne Quilled & Beaded Elaborate Pipe Bag c1890
Item Details
Description
The lot features a phenomenal Indian hide quillwork and beadwork pipe bag from the Cheyenne Native American Indians, dating to the late 19th Century. The bag shows an Indian tanned hide with dark patina coloring, all sinew sewn with 1800’s period correct glass trade seed beads and porcupine quillwork. The bag has an elaborate finely detailed beadwork geometric pattern with traditional “tab” Cheyenne pattern, as seen on other documented examples. The beadwork shows colors of greasy yellow, cobalt, chalk white, greasy blue, and rose red hearts. The beadwork is across the bag opening with a fancy edge, down each side with a thick vertical band and thin vertical band, across both sides of the bottom section, and down the center of both sides with thin pointed linear sections. Below the beadwork is a section of fringe split parfleche rawhide, which is completely covered in porcupine quillwork with natural dyes of red and yellow, showing slight loss yet overall good condition. Below the parfleche quilled fringe is long frilled Indian tanned hide fringes. The hide itself has a stiffened condition from honest old age and use, displaying a dark coloring patina and slight suppleness. The top has the original tie strap and the bag shows little-to-no bead loss. Overall, this is a fantastic bag well-kept from a large pipe bag collection. Provenance: From a private museum collection in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region of France. The pipe bag measures 35” L by 5.75” W.
