    Beaded and Quilled Lakota Pipe Bag, c. 1850. Used to hold ceremonial pipes, this example is a thread-sewn, tanned hide bag measuring 21" long and 5" wide. It is decorated with glass seed beads around its rim and along both sides. Attached to the bag's bottom edge is a 5" band of quilled strips followed by another 20" of hide fringe. There is minor loss to the quills and beads and moderate handling wear, else, this bag is in very good condition.
