The sea green cotton fabric on the front of this piece has shows significant wear, and the red polished cotton back has some fading. This Whimsy comes in the shape of a ladies’ boot. 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.
