Unusual ! ** BEADED THUNDERBIRD ** Appears circa 1900

An outstanding and rather unusual beaded Thunderbird !
I'm not sure of the tribal origin, but it does appear to be from about circa 1900. I'm not an expert, so please judge for yourself and bid/buy based on your perception.
- As it lays down naturally, width is 4 1/2" at the wing tips, and height is 3 3/4".
On what appears to be elkskin backing.
Intact, and sound, with just a bit of bead loss at the upper-inner left wing, as can be seen if you look for it.
Great piece......
