Not exactly sure what I have but I think it's best described as Native Style, Not Native made. Probably a hobbyist or for a western display. Most beadwork is done in strips and then glued on. The glue has decomposed so some needs are loose or missing. Multiple bead patterns so not sure if machine made or hand made for all the pieces. Most pieces require repair or a good cleaning. Has a barn / musty smell as they were left in a barn way too long. At least they were in a closed trunk to keep out the critters. I'll try to describe as best as possible but it's all a guess.


Leather deerskin dress with beadwork.
Papoose with bead work and two smaller pieces of bear skin.
Bearskin (appears to be real) vest with pockets and ties.
