Pair of Plateau Beaded Child's High Top Moccasins, circa 1890

$ 2,285
  • Description
    Native American Indian, possibly Shoshone, these high top children’s moccasins are intricately constructed with delicate beadwork and fine tanned leather with great attention to detail. They were made in the late 19th century, possibly for the tourist trade, but more than likely to be worn by the Indian children at that time. Green, silver and rust are the colors of the beads, while the suede is a neutral tanned color. Condition is excellent and all original. Plateau Indians occupied a large expanse of territory stretching from the Rocky Mountains to the California coastal areas and as far north as British Columbia.

    Dimensions: 6” high x 6 ¾” long.
