Whimsey Antique Green Beaded Matchbox


Antique Beaded Matchbox Whimsey

This 1906 Green Beaded Matchbox Whimsy was made using green and gray Pony Beads on cotton fabric. You will also see some gray and green Basket Beads along with brass colored sequins in the design. The crafter added Beaded Looped Tassels made with pony and basket beads and black silk fabric to the back.

The 1906 Matchbox Whimsey measures about 4.5″ at the widest section and 6″ tall not including the 1.5″ tassels. The pocket is 2.5″ x 1″ at the opening.

This 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.

One of a kind!
