Beaded Cree Knife Case with Knife
Beaded Cree Knife Case with KnifeThe Beadwork on this Knife Case is Cree. The crafter used Opalescent White, Red, Orange, Green, Chartreuse, Light Blue and Purple Seed Beads to create the design. The leather sheath is soft Cowhide and has 6.5" of attached fringe. The crafter added a wide belt loop to the back and lined it with Strap Leather. Two pieces of lacing sport Plastic Crow Beads. Someone has written Grey Wolf Walks Far .... (illegible) in ink on the back of the case.
The large knife features a natural deer antler handle which is heavy. The crafter used Deerskin Leather Lacing to attach a reproduction blade. The blade looks like it was cast, perhaps in plaster. You can see evidence of a crack in the blade along with some old adhesive.
The beadwork remains in good condition. One of the seams is beginning to separate at the open end.
