WRAPPED AT THE TOP WITH LEATHER and then beautifully beaded in gourd stitch, this stone arrowhead (?), point (?), piece of neatly shaped stone (?) has native ties and a baby stone arrowhead tied to it. The bead work is done in a lightning pattern, colors are transparent gold, deep red, opaque royal blue, and light blue. The beads are tiny, more like 16's or 18's. This came in a box with an Osage/Kiowa man's things. This is a rare, personal piece which I believe would have been tied on a man's breast piece, bandoleer, choker, or another piece of his regalia. Perhaps it is a hunting charm, or a prayer charm to bring back the old days of hunting.
SIZE: 4 1/4" LENGTH 1 1/2" WIDE
CONDITION: Good, the baby arrowhead has a small chip out of it. The large stone appears fine. Bead work is intact and strong, so tight I can't tell if it is sewn with sinew or thread, betting sinew because of the small beads and how tight it is. The leather ties and string are soiled.
CIRCA: The stone is well, stone and old. The bead work appears to be from the early 1900's thru the 40's.
This is a very interesting piece and would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
