Lot of Collectibles
Lot of CollectiblesGet three unique items in one sweep with this Lot of Collectibles! The three items include:
- Birch bark picture frame. This frame looks brand new and shows no fading or wear. Strands of Sweetgrass line the edges of two birchbark pieces to make a picture frame. The opening will display a 2" x 3" photo. It even comes with a hole in the top so you can hang it up! Overall measurements 4.5" x 6".
- Beaded Velveteen Purse. Crafted around 1960, this purse features clear seed bead decorations. The front has faded to a taupe color but you can see the original purple on the back and underneath the flap. A brown gabardine fabric lines the inside. Minimal bead loss. Some stitches have loosened. The purse measures 3.75" x 4".
- Beaded Whimsy Purse. Whimsy items are little mementos made with fabric and beadwork. Native Americans from the border regions between Canada and the United States created Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs around the turn of the 20th century. This purse features Clear Pony Beads and Clear Seed Beads. Faceted Black Tube Beads and tiny Green Tube Beads accentuate the piece. Orange-Red fabric covers the outside. Some of this fabric shows wear spots and tears. Red cotton fabric lines the inside. The beadwork remains mostly intact. The hook part of the hook & eye closure is missing. The purse measures 3.5" long x 2" high x 1.5" wide front to back. We believe a Native American crafter created this Whimsy Purse around 1900.
