Plateau Beaded Flat Bag with Eagle
This is a wonderful bag from the Plateau Indians with a large eagle with outstretched wings with a large red flower on a long stem on each side. The background is blue with a green bead border around it. It was re-backed at some point in the 1960-1970's based on the flowered pattern on the lining and then it continued to be used. It also has a change in the beads used in the background in the upper left often means the maker of the bag ran out of the beads she started the bag with.
