Vintage Native American Beaded Hatband Sioux Indian Design C.1840
VINTAGE SIOUX INDIAN DESIGN IN EARTHTONE COLORS.
The price for this one is 160.00. The photos with the price tags of $130 were taken in 2001, 19 years ago. Inflation. Sorry for the confusion.
Accurate Reproduction from line drawings of the Western Sioux Indian Design, Circa 1840-1870. See Photo of line illustration I colored by number, put out by the United State Department of The Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs~Division of Education, 1940.
This particular hatband was ordered by Brad Boucher of Wixom, MI, so I don't currently have one beaded and available. Please contact me if you would like me to custom bead one for you. It normally takes 14-21 days to bead one, DEPENDING ON MY CURRENT BEADING SCHEDULE. Please see comments from past customers below, under MORE INFO.
All my beaded hatbands are individually hand beaded on my handmade oak loom, by myself personally, using only quality glass seed beads.
This one is an exquisite, intricate and detailed geometic beaded hatband. I patterned it after a Western Sioux Design line drawing, circa 1840-1870, only using earthtone colors to go well on hats. One of my first and favorites. Truely.......
"A WORK OF ART HEIRLOOM"
It is a very attractive 11-line wide hatband, I patterned in August 2001. It finishes at 1/2" wide with 325 rows, incorporating 3,575 individual tiny size 15/0 quality glass seed beads, in 5 earthtone colors of, dark brown, taupe (tan), rust, bone, and green.
The beadwork is finished neatly with natural deerhide tabs (ends). No glueing over beadwork like some, and finishes at 22 1/2" in length. You then have a long matching deerhide lacing/tie to attach the hatband around the crown of you hat.
This attractive hatband with the feel of fabric will look great on and add a "Touch of Class" to that special hat. This one will fit nicely on all hats sized 7 and larger.
My beadwork is First quality American-Handmade Craftsmanship and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity Card, with a guarantee of being meticulously handmade by me, entirely on a bead loom with my signature and date, and future contact information.
