Vintage, museum quality, fully beaded vest by an unknown artist and tribal affiliation IF ANY. I believe this to be from the 70's? from the calico print lining. It measures 24" from shoulder to the bottom before the 4" fringes. The width is 20" across, and the ties can be adjusted to open more.
It is in very good condition, but I did find two small areas with bead loss - maybe 15 beads (can be repaired). The leather appears to be brain tanned, but I am not sure. The retail tag says $6000, and I did see one by this same artist a few years back in a shop in Las Vegas for $6500.
Amazing wolf kachina by Hopi/Navajo artist Robert Gaddy.
Very nice colors and details - all wood with a few leather pieces.
Measures 10" tall and 6 1/2" at widest.
Huge Unique Birich Bark Rogan (rare) with animals (qual, beaver and elk designs). I have the origninal tag that says Cree, and artists Edmond & Lucie, but I can't make out the last name. Perhaps someone knows these artists? Piece measures 11" tall, and 11" wide. Lid is about 11 1/2". There are braintanned leather handles on either side, and a tie to hold the lid on.
