Antique Sioux Tobacco Pouch

This antique leather pouch comes to us from the Late Reservation Period around the turn of the 20th century. Pouches like this served to hold tobacco for personal use.  Native Americans also made bags like this for the tourist trade.

The crafter created this bag from Braintanned Deerskin Leather. He or she used Sinew to sew it together. Loops of edge beading in Cobalt Blue, Clear Yellow and White Center Red 12/0 Seed Beads surround the edges. You will also see minimal decoration on one side made with the Cobalt Blue beads.

The bag comes with an old collection tag that reads: Sioux pouch near White River, South Dakota.  The tag itself is an antique! The bag is in very good condition for its age.

This Tobacco Pouch measures 6" top to bottom and 4.25" across at the widest point.
