Plains Cree or Great lakes Ojibwa 19th century Moccasins. Because the beads are so tiny they could date very early.
They were probably collected early and put away for safe keeping. They show patina but not a lot of wear. These are so striking in person, photos don't do them justice!!! The little cut facet brass beads that I point out in the picture are the size of a tiny seed bead and the rest of the beads are even half that size.A nice mix of cut facet and seed beads including rose heart white center reds. Size is 8.5 These I love, and you will too!!! We are just getting started...... Once a year we do a mass listing of some of our Native American collection out of our Museum so check back often.
