    Wonderful Beaded and Fringed Buckskin Jacket, Circa 1890 - 1910. Handcut 5" fringe along the upper portion of front and back, with 1.5" fringe extending the length of each sleeve. All edges with decorative scalloped cut. 1.5" standup collar with two buttons. The coat buttons right to left, with handmade two hole bone buttons made without shanks and affixed with rawhide. Four front pockets, partial body lining of a rather coarse linen. The pockets and cuffs, as well as a 5" wide panel on the front and the shoulders/back are covered with profuse and elaborate floral beadwork using seed beads and certainly the work of a native American craftsman. Superb overall condition with all stitching and beadwork tight and perfect. Most attractive and loaded with character, exuding the flavor and romance of the American west.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
