Lot 1252
A Quilled Pair of Native American Gauntlets, Likely Wisconsin Origin
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Circa 1900, of deer hide having stained figural quillwork on the top and fringes to the sides.

Each 2 x 7 x 15 in.

From the family collection of Indian Agent Charles Edwin Kelsey (1861-1936). Kelsey was highly regarded for having "...written extensively and eloquently on the practical and moral obligation of the government to redress the atrocious wrongs suffered by California Indians."

Light wear and soiling to the hide; the quillwork with some losses.
