ANTIQUE NATIVE AMERICAN HAUDENOSAUNEE /IROQUOIS INDIAN BEADED PURSE/ TOBACCO BAG. This superb antique find is fresh from an local estate collection. It dates to the mid 19th Century era (circa 1840-60s) and comes from a non-smoking household. This bag is skillfully hand-stitched from minute glass beads atop a silk velvet ground.
It has a fine linen lining and a short velvet carrying strap. The bag measures approximately 5 3/4" high by 5 1/8 " in diameter. The bag is in what I would consider fine to good condition for a bag of such age, with the only flaws being some generous wear to the velvet at the edging and strap, visible raveling to the central portion of the strap, and a small area of minor bead loss to each side.
(See photos above for a close-up). This beautiful Haudenosaunee bag will make an eye-catching addition to any fine home or collection! Cashmere sweaters, colorful coats, fabulous party dresses, fine jewelry, and an absolutely lucious trove of vintage lingerie.
