A Native American North Eastern Woodlands Iroquois or Lenape (Delaware) Beaded
Pouch
Red stroud, silk, cotton, linen and glass seed beads
Circa 1860
Size: 11.5cm high, 14cm wide – 4½ ins high, 5½ ins wide
This pouch, which is in a fine condition, evenly balances native American concepts with the naturalism of European floral design. The leaves and flowers depicted in small circles and ovals are fairly abstract and colour is used imaginatively to produce a memorable effect. The composition is based on the traditional and indigenous double curve motif.
