Plateau Fully Beaded Gauntlets
These are a good early pair of fully beaded Plateau gauntlets with a floral design of pansies on the upper part and a red and blue flower on the wrist. The beads are tiny seed beads, some of which are faceted which makes it more likely that they are from the Pendleton area or Eastern Washington rather than Yakima or Warm Springs. I say this because I have never bought a beaded piece with the early faceted seed beads in the beading from either the Yakima area or Warm Springs unless the owner had told me that someone in their family lived at one time either in Pendleton or in Eastern Washington or Idaho. These gauntlets are in very good condition and show only moderate use.
