    Excellent Croft Cabinet of Ponca Indian Mourning Dance, circa 1895. Oklahoma City photographer T. Croft published a series of images featuring the Ponca Indians in the 1890s, this one featuring an "Indian Religeous [sic] Dance Mourning departed Braves." In the center of a large cleared dancing area, a group of finely dressed Ponca Indians stand closely together. Seated along the outside of the dance ground are many Indian spectators. The photograph, identified is number "D10" on the negative, is affixed to Croft's scalloped, gilt-lettered and gilt-edged photographer's mount.

    Condition: Both the photo and the cardboard mount are in exceptional condition - fresh, clean, and sharp. Very fine.
