Cradle Reproduction Cheyenne Style
Master Craftsman Andy Bullock created this soft fabric Reproduction Cheyenne Style Cradle. This Cradle reproduces a Southern Cheyenne style from the 1880s. Andy used Lazy Stitch on a Braintanned Deerskin panel to bead the top of the Cradle with reproduction color Pony Beads in Pony Trader Blue, Mustard, White Center Red, and Cobalt Blue, along with White and Clear Green. He created a rolled edge along the top. Andy finished the top with a square of Rawhide covered with Lazy Stitch beadwork and two triangular Beaded Drops made with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing and Brass Beads. Use the 13″ long Braintanned Deerskin Leather lacing ties to tie the Cradle closed.
The cradle has a Dark Red wool body, complete with a complementary paisley fabric lining.
This cradle measures 41″ long by 32″ wide when spread out.
One of a Kind!
