Lakota Sioux Beaded & Quilled Pipe Bag 19th C.
Item Details
Description
This is an extremely fine beaded and quilled hide pipe bag from the Lakota Sioux Native American Indians of the 19th Century. The bag features an Indian tanned hide, likely Buffalo Bison, that is adorned with red mineral pigment ocher, fine beadwork, and quillwork with long frilly hide fringe at the base. The beadwork is all glass trade seed cen beads of the correct 1800’s period in a traditional Sioux geometric pattern with colors of chalk white, greasy blue, rose, cobalt, sky padre light blue, and semi-translucent green. The beadwork is present on the top rim, in two bands down each side, and at the base in a fine, large rectangle that extends on both sides of the bag. Below the beadwork is the porcupine quilled parfleche hide strips. The quill work is all-natural porcupine quills in a typical blocky geometric pattern with natural dyed colors of yellow and red. Below the quillwork is sewn the Indian tanned hide, hand cut, long frilly fringe. The bag itself shows a very well-preserved condition, given its pre-1890 age, along with correct manufacture and sinew sewing. The top of the bag also shows the 8.5 inch long hide tie strap. Provenance: From the largest American Indian Antiquities collection in Montana, where it was found to be an authentic pre-1890 example. The bag measures 32 inches long with an additional 8.5 inch tie strap at the top and 6 inches wide.
