Matchstick Holder Whimsey with Floral Design
This Floral Whimsy Matchstick Holder was made using Transparent Yellow, Red, Light Purple, Gray, and Clear Pony Beads. You will also find green and brown basket beads along with brass sequins in the design. The crafter beaded two flowers on the two front pockets. The top and bottom are beaded along with beading along the edges. The crafter added Beaded Looped Tassels made with pony and basket beads. The whimsey has a beaded loop on the top to hang it up. The gold polished cotton fabric is in good condition.
This Floral Matchstick Holder Whimsy measures about 5.5 inches at the widest section and 7 inches tall not including the 1″ tassels. Each pocket is 2″ x .75″ at the opening.
This is a classic example of 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.
