Whimsy Beaded Heart 1915
Whimsy Beaded Heart 1915A crafter created this Antique 1915 Beaded Heart Whimsy using clear, red and light blue seed beads with gray seed beads to make the year 1915 on cream cotton fabric. The back was made with red polished cotton. They used a colorful mix of seed beads to make the tassels and clear seed beads on the hanging loop. The whimsy has very little bead loss and is in good condition with some light staining on the front. The beautiful red polished cotton back has minimal fading.
This whimsy 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.
It measures about 3″ long x 3″ wide. The thickness is about 1″.
