Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Strips of multi-colored beadwork set against a black fabric ground are sewn to pliable felt gloves.

10.5 in.

Descended from Charles Green, early 20th century Indian agent and native of Okobojo, South Dakota. Charlie Green, a Spanish-American War veteran, worked for the government as an agent in various locations, including the Pacific Northwest. He died in Portland, Oregon in the 1950s.

Soiling and light wear to the felt; mothing to the borders of the decorative strips has disrupted some of the edge beading.
