Ojibwe beaded moccasins

Pair of leather moccasins made in the late nineteenth century.  The black velvet cuff and vamp are decorated with metal faceted and glass seed beads arranged in a floral motif. Predominant colors are clear, white, purples, yellows, oranges, blues, greens, and reds. The cuff and tongue are trimmed with a purple silk ribbon that serves as a tie closure.
