Iroquois Beaded Boot Pincushion/Whimsy

An Iroquois crafter created this Pin Cushion Whimsy using Clear Seed Beads and Clear Basket Beads.  It is a classic example of the 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.

This Whimsy comes in the shape of a ladies’ boot.    The front shows a dark red fabric.  Crafters often create Whimsies with velveteen, but we can see no nap left on this fabric to suggest it was velveteen.  Polished cotton in a tan color makes up the back.

Someone added a braided Wool Yarn loop to the back of this Whimsy.  You will see a frayed place on the yarn, so you may not be able to hang it with this yarn. You will see some staining on the back, but the beadwork remains intact.

The Antique Iroquois Beaded Pincushion Whimsy measures 4″ long x 3″ wide.

One of a Kind!
