Elm Bark Rattle Vintage
Traditional crafters made an Elm Bark Rattle from folded and dried Elm Bark with a natural branch handle. This One of a Kind Vintage Elm Bark Rattle comes with Top Grain Deerskin Leather Lacing wrapped around the handle. The crafter also added handmade clay beads. We think the rattles inside are pebbles.
Native American Dancers use Rattles to produce the rhythm for song and dance. Musicians can hit Rattles against the palm of their hand, or shake them. Elm Bark Rattles are a traditional Native American instrument. Native peoples used them before contact with Europeans.
This Rattle belonged to a previous owner, but it remains in very good condition. It measures just about 16″ long.
