Assiniboine pipe bag

Assiniboine (Nakota) buckskin pipe bag, ca. 1890. The bag has beadwork on its lower half featuring the image of a horse and is sewn to wool blanket cloth. A double roll of buckskin fringe hangs from the bottom. The fringe and neck of the bag appear to have been dyed yellow at one time. Vertical bars of quillwork decorate the bottom of the bag near the fringe. The neck closes with two short lengths of ribbon.
