Beaded Gold Bird Whimsy with Dangles
A crafter created this Beaded Gold Bird Whimsy using Transparent Red, Yellow and Amber Seed Beads on gold polished cotton. You will also find Amber Basket Beads and brass sequins in the design. The bird has beaded dangles on it’s beak and feet. The eyes are made with green beads and red beads decorate the head. The beadwork is in good condition with little to no missing beads. You will notice the aging of the fabric and see some stains. The bird measures approx. 6.5 inches long from head to tail and 6 inches tall with the feet dangling.
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 Beaded Pin Cushion will make an unusual addition to your antique or whimsy collection!
