REAL PHOTOGRAPH POST CARD OF "Pahsetopah" in full native dress by Orton Studio in Pawhuska, Okla. This is a beautiful image of a very photographic chief living in Oklahoma during the first half of the 20th century. Pahsetopah is standing, wearing his eagle feather bonnet with multiple ribbon drops framing his beautiful face. Of special note indicating his importance is each feather wrap on the bonnet is beaded. He is wearing a bone breast plate with beaded drops hanging from large shell discs down the center. His double strand mescal bean bandolier crosses over his right shoulder. He has a large german silver peyote bird scarf slide, traditional man's ribbon shirt, german silver arm bands and is holding an eagle feather fan with beautiful beading and beaded drops plus either a flute or beaded dance stick. You can just see his beaded waist belt and part of his loin. Pahsetopah was one of the most photographed of the Oklahoma native americans.
CONDITION: Very good, I don't see any bends, creases or dings. Photograph is clear, in focus and the contrast is excellent. Unused with only a notation on the back in pencil "Osage" and some pencil smears.
CIRCA: EKC-1939 TO 1950
