Ute Child’s Miniature Tail Bag
This is an early piece, probably Ute, and rare. This small "otter tail" bag has early blue beads, with red white-heart design, and ruby red (Kiowa red) edge beads. This was used by a child, as opposed to a tourist's miniature souvenir. Someone along the way has replaced the leather string tie with a piece of early braided twine, otherwise the bag is in original condition. It bears an old paper label affixed to the back with "243" on it, indicating it came out of a museum or private collection.
