Lakota Women's Legging And Moccasin Set  Turn Of The Century - image 1 of 9

A truly wonderful pair of Lakota moccasins and leggings from the turn of the century featuring lovely and intact sinew sewn bead work on brain tanned deer hide with parfleche soles. These high top sets are becoming increasingly rare and should be the center piece of any Northern Plains bead work collection. These well preserved and intact leggings and moccasins will not disappoint as the perfectly designed bead work and lovely early colors make this a superb set.
They are 21" tall.

An early reservation example, these moccasins represent the stylistic traditions of the Indian Wars period. Although this example dates from the early reservation period In the 1890’s to the turn of the century. Still present in this example are the early post- Civil War bead colors featuring chalk white, red center rose and other early diagnostic period colors. Attached to the deer hide uppers with deer or elk sinew the soles are fashioned from thick elk par fleche hide. The design patterns harken to the prevalent styles of the 1870’s and are created with an incredible sense of color balance, design and harmonious details.
