Remarks:
Piece of tanned hide, seamed on verso, and sewn closed at bottom. Hide has been ochred. Recto is covered in 21 3/8” W horizontal rows of sinew sewn glass pony beads. Majority white with two (2) center rows in black. Some triangles of beadwork inserted subtly into the rows to “straighten” the rows hide that does not lie in straight line – typically seen in dresses. This could possibly be a repurposed dress yoke (or part of). Two hide ties attached to top. Plain on verso.
