Tlingit Beaded Knife Sheath

$ 250.00

This knife sheath has seen better days but it remains an intact and interesting piece of beadwork from Alaska. It has three bands of cloth at the top; red and blue wool trade cloth and printed cotton with bands of glass or metal beads as boundaries between the cloth bands. It has a long vertical panel of red wool cloth down the front with metal beads, some of which have been corroded beyond recognition.  Overall it is a good example of a working Tlingit knife sheath.

L.  9 ¼"
