Up for auction, fresh from the Ian Tait Collection, is this original native beaded bag that is Ojibwa, circa 1930-50 It is beautifully beaded on both sides with a tulip on one side and a floral motif on the other. It also has two tassels on each side and a tassel on each end for a total of 6 tassels. Small beadwork loops hold the tassels in place. The hide is a little miscoloured with age. It has a draw string and is in just superb condtion. It is 7 1/4" in height by 4 1/4" in width. A great piece to add to any First Nations collection.
