This spectacular Woodlands Glengarry probably from Grand River, First Nations, Canada is an amalgamation of styles with elements of Iroquois/Mohawk bead work. However, the beaded design pattern deviates significantly from the usual. The depiction of a wheat sheaf and robins egg blue morning glories on the crown, with none of the typical stripes in the leaves and buds on the side panels is unique, as are the solid colors depicting arrow arum, a marshy woodlands plant, plus buds, leaves and vines in apple green. There are five-petal solid color flowers in white and clear with rose white heart centers. The interior lining of polished green cotton is original and entirely intact as is all fabric and beadwork with the exception of approx.
Two inches (root beer in color) of the stockade beading on the caps right side above the red cotton edge binding. This cap is authentic, museum quality, and the only one of its type I have seen in twenty-five years of collecting and studying Northeastern Woodlands and Maritime beadwork. Measures: 9 inches long minus ribbons; 5 inches wide across the crown; 4 inches high (ribbons are 5 inches long).
