    Description

    Grizzly Claw Necklace, c. 1850. 14-1/2" bead to bead, this necklace is comprised of thirteen bear claws strung alternately with dark red mescal beads. Those are on a cotton cord, which indicates a later repair. Tanned hide strings are attached to each end of the cord to maintain the necklace's original look. As is, this piece is still in excellent condition. Originally part of the famed James B. Scoville Collection. The Michael Ward Collection of Western Americana
