Saddle Bag, 1860
Beads on leather
18 1/2 x 22 1/8 in. (46.99 x 56.2 cm)
glass beads and leather
See R. Conn report (1978).
Simple bands of color were common in beadwork, even before regional styles developed. This bag of bison leather probably dates from a later period than the beadwork sewn to it, which has been transferred from another article. American bison, commonly and erroneously called the buffalo, once ranged throughout the North American continent. By 1885 they were nearly extinct.
