This very rare and stunningly beautiful, ca1890’s Sioux Quill and Bead Decorated Hide Tipi Bag is in very good condition. All of the hide elements are well preserved and sound – soft and supple with no damage or repairs of any kind. There is age appropriate light wear and light soiling to the hide surfaces but no damage other than minor surface scuffs. The beadwork is exceptionally beautiful and well preserved with no loss, damage or repairs of any kind. The quill decoration is well preserved with some fading to the colors and some scattered, minor loss as can be seen in the scans below and is typical with 19th century Indian Artifacts with quill decoration. It is difficult to tell how many tin cone and dyed horse hair drops originally trimmed the sides of the Bag, but it appears that a number of these drops have been lost over the years. Otherwise this stunningly beautiful, late 19th century Sioux Teepee bag is exceptionally well preserved and among the finest Native American Indian Artifiats that we have had the pleasure to offer over the past 39+ years!!
All elements of the Teepee Bag are original and there has been no repairs or restorations - this wonderful Quill and Bead Decorated Bag is 100% original and 100% beautiful.
