Item History and Pricing
|Tribal Affiliation: Anishinaabe / Ojibwa|
This outstanding, 19th century, Ojibwa Bead Decorated Bandolier Bag is thread sewn by hand with spot stitched beadwork. The front surface of the Bag and the shoulder strap are made of a black, velvet fabric that is backed by a soft, polished polished cotton Trade Cloth. The extensive, stylized floral bead decoration is executed using multiple colored beads including chalk white, pink, red white heart, pea green, dark green, medium blue, translucent red, translucent clear, greasy yellow, black and other colored beads. This VERY large and impressive Ojibwa Bandolier Bag is trimmed with a red and yellow, trade cloth border and features 9, beaded panel drop, each with a different geometric design (see the scans below)..
The Ojibwa Bandolier Bag offered here is unconditionally guaranteed original and of the period. It is NOT a reproduction or modern recreation but an original Anishinaabe / Ojibwa Bag crafted in the mid to late 19th century. The Bag comes with our “no questions asked” return privilege and our lifetime guarantee of authenticity. It is guaranteed to be deemed authentic, original and as described by any qualified third party authentication service.
This very rare and beautiful, 1880’s Anishinaabe / Ojibwa Indian Bead Decorated Bandolier Bag is in very good condition and displays beautifully. The velvet fabric substrate is generally well preserved with some surface wear to the beaded panel above the opening of the Bag itself and with small and scattered spots of wear to the surface of the shoulder strap. The bead decoration is stunningly beautiful and generally well preserved with minor bead loss to the decoration on the front panel of the Bag and on the panel above the Bag opening. There is some loss to the clear translucent beads on the shoulder strap and while 5 of the beaded panel drops are in excellent condition, one has damage to the beaded panel itself and three others have loss to the thread and read wool strand tassels (again see the scans below). All elements of the Bag are original and there has been other no repairs or restorations – it is 100% original and stunningly beautiful.
A very rare and very beautiful, ca1880’s (or earlier) Native American Anishinaabe / Ojibwa Indian Bead Decorated Bandolier Bag and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges: The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by eBay and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.
