Moccasins – Antique Apache Style Child’s
These Antique Moccasins feature a two strip beaded design on the vamp. This design is common among Apache style moccasins. We believe they come from around 1900. The crafter used Braintanned Deerhide. He or she stitched them together and did the beadwork with cotton thread. Then he or she added edge beading to the flap and the cuff.
The crafter used Mustard, Clear Red and Clear Blue Seed Beads to create the design and edge beading. Rawhide soles cover the bottom.
A previous owner wore these moccasins. We offer them as antique collectibles. You can see minor bead loss, due to the deterioration of the beads because of their age. Small holes indicate where Leather Lacing may have been. You will also find some small discolored spots.
These moccasins measure just about 6″ long x 2.5″ wide. They stand about 1.25″ high at the cuff.
You will find these a delightful addition to a moccasin or beadwork collection!
