    Description

    Important Pair of Beaded Hide Moccasins Belonging to Chief Red Cloud. A beautiful pair with popular American flag motif. Original stickers on soles identify these as coming from Red Cloud, and they appear as such on the handwritten pre-1959 inventory of the collection. Soles show clear evidence of use, but the pair is in excellent condition. Included with the lot is a period cabinet photo of Red Cloud, identified in pencil on verso, which was passed down through the family along with the moccasins.

    From the Rathbun Family Collection. See also Lots 51370 through 51412 for additional material from this collection.
