Product Description

This is a Native American First Nations Pocket Watch Holder. Beadwork, done on black velvet, made with glass and steel beads, with embroidery along the border. It is decorated with roses and leaves, in an abstract native design. It has a front pocket to hold a pocket watch. It appears to made by the Cree, I have seen similar work done by the Metis People, from the same area. Metis are part Cree and early white settlers, fur traders. The steel beads are commonly used around 1890 – 1920. The back is a black and maroon taffeta material, that is well worn. It has some bead losses around the border edge. It measures 5 ¼ x 3 ½ inches.
