Ca1890s NATIVE AMERICAN PLAINS INDIAN AMERICAN BUFFALO BISON HIDE BAG
Very rare and wonderful, ca1890's Native American Plains Indian Buffalo Hide Bag. This outstanding 19th century, hand made buffalo hide Bag measures approx. 10" long and 8 1/2" wide. It is hand thread sewn and features 19th century brass buttons and a late 19th century commercial leather strap which is attached with hand pounded copper rivets. The buttonholes are sewn at the top and bottom edges by hand in order to prevent the hid from tearing at the holes. It is difficult to date a hand made Bag like this but it is definitely 19th century - the strap is ca1890's but it appears that it may have been a later addition as there a matching brass button on the back of the bag and thread attesting to the fact that there was another button on this side also - these buttons may have been used to attach the bag to a belt or other piece of clothing. We have always admired these types of items and took the plunge into an area where we had not ventured often before.
