Potawatomi Hair Binder 1870's

Collected by Henry W. Andrews in the 1870's. This piece is part of a large lot of material collected by Andrews from the Winnebago, Potawatomi, Cree and related tribes (see other items he collected from the same Michigan family that I will be listing on my site). This and other pieces have only had two owners and have resided in Michigan for almost 150 years hence their good condition which is rare for items like these. The period bead colors are "bottle green" clear, wine red, sky blue "corn" yellow, cobalt blue light, cobalt blue dark, translucent turquoise blue, "Cheyenne" pink, white winter rose, "Sioux" grass green, clear amber and French chalk white. Although the piece is in good condition there are a few beads missing here and there as well as missing half of the fringe. Thread is strong, supple, not brittle and damaged. Thus a very displayable and colorful example from this early time period. 1 3/4" x 30".
