Huron Moose Hair embroidered Cigar Case

$ 395.00

This is one of those wonderful Indian art works sold along the St Lawrence Seaway and other eastern venues by the Huron and other Northeastern Indians to travelers and vacationers to those areas.  These were made from birchbark and embroidered with moose hair.  This one has an Indian and a bird in a floral landscape on both sides of the lid and the body of the case. The moose hair embroidery is in good condition but the case itself is fragile as can be seen in the photos.  This is a wonderful piece to look at in a cabinet of curiosities or a collection of rare and unusual Indian art.
