BEAUTIFUL TINY, TINY CUT BEADS SEWN ON NATIVE TANNED AND SMOKED HIDE ADORN THE TOES OF THIS PAIR OF ANKLE WRAPPED, PLATEAU MOCCASINS. I believe this pair to have been made by the Nez Perce in the early 1900's. They are made in the traditional Plateau style of a side seam and beading over the heel seams with tiny split tails off the back. They are in perfect, almost unworn condition! There are two native repairs to the hide, one to the inside heel of the left moccasin and one on the bottom towards the heel of the right moccasin. I believe both repairs were done by the maker after the moccasins were cut out and before they were sewn together.
The beautiful cut bead colors are: Transparent: crystal (nicely aging and taking on that aged pink tint), green, and a wonderful cranberry. Opaque colors are: greasy yellow, pink (possibly Cheyenne), light blue, and navy blue.
