Up for your Consideration ........
Sioux Bear Rattle
The glass trade beads appear to be original Cheyenne Pink, Chalk White, and Black which places this piece as being Northern Sioux Made.
The rattle features a rawhide wrapped handle which is rawhide sewn, having a section of glass trade beads (possibly older original beads) that are sewn with trade cotton string.
The rattle is made of what appears to be bear rawhide in the shape of a bear sewn with rawhide with glass trade beads on the inside for sound.
The fringe is made of feathers, wood trade beads, brass bullet cartridges and bone beads.
I believe this is a moremodern piece (mid century) made in the same method as the ancient rattle.
Measures 13.25" long without the fringe.
Excellent Vintage Condition. Aged Patina.
Great Addition to your Special Jewelry Collection.
Thank you for your time and good luck.
