Whimsy Beaded Boot

Whimsy Beaded Boot
An Iroquois crafter created this Whimsy Beaded Boot using glass Seed Beads and Basket Beads in the early 1900s. It is a classic example of Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs. Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States at the turn of the 20th century created many of these whimsies for the tourist trade.
This Whimsy comes in the shape of a ladies’ boot. The bead worker used clear, red, green, yellow and blue beads to make the raised design and edged it with silk. The silk backing is in good condition. The blue wool has some damage showing the cardboard underneath.
The Antique Whimsy Beaded Boot measures 8″ long x 5″ wide.
One of a kind!
