Hat Glengarry with Turtle


Glengarry Style Hat with Beaded Snapping Turtle

This Hat Glengarry with Turtle will be a fabulous accessory for your next event, or an addition to your collection.  The crafter decorated the sides of this Red Wool cap  with Double Curve designs in White Seed Beads.  He accented these designs with real Quahog Wampum discs and tubes.  On the top, the crafter created a Snapping Turtle design with White Seed Beads.  He edged the bottom of the cap with Black Ribbon.  A bow and drops of more Black Ribbon appear on the back of the cap.  The crafter lined the inside of the cap with dark red fabric.

The Glengarry hat is a traditional Scottish cap that Scottish military regiments wore. The name comes from the Glengarry region in Scotland.  Traders imported hats like these for exchange with Native Americans during the 19th century. Iroquois and Wabanaki crafters decorated them with Beadwork and Ribbons to make colorful accessories.  This Hat Glengarry with Turtle measures about 11.5 inches long  and about 4.5 inches wide at the top.  We got this cap from a collection.  It is in new condition.  One of a Kind!
