Offered is a Plains Beaded Leather Lizard or Turtle Fetish with trade beads instead of the traditional jingle cones. It could be a turtle or lizard. The length and narrow back makes me think it looks more like a lizard. Beautiful beadwork and a sueded leather. This is fairly contemporary, probably last quarter of the 20th Century. It measures 7″ by 2 1/2″ wide. It is sewn with thread. The gaps appear to be as made. Slight smudging on leather on bottom. This came from a Florida estate. A note: We’re all healthy here and are isolated and washing hands regularly. If you’re worried just leave your packages in a garage or porch area for a few days before opening. Thanks and be well. Most of the items we sell come from our personal collection gathered over the years from our travels, from Nativ e powwows and craft stores, antique shops, auctions and estate sales. Now that our kids are in college and beyond, we are letting some items go so others can enjoy them. Then I’ll send you a combined invoice. Sorry for the expense, but I’ve had items lost overseas when mailing first class and don’t want to take the risk of losing items. I pack carefully and try to reuse materials to save on environmental impact. I often double-box items with smaller gift boxes collected from various thrift stores. I reuse all that I receive and hope you will make use of the ones that come in your packages.
