Vintage Native Pine Needle Purse

$150

Vintage native pine needle purse. Circa 1940. This vintage purse was most likely made by a member of one of the Southeastern tribes  —  such as the Choctaw or Seminole  —  since pine needles in the southeastern U.S.A. average eight to ten inches in length. The detailed craftsmanship in this piece is exceptional! The coils of pine needles are held together by intricate stitching in sweetgrass, in a combination of “v” and “fern” stitches. This is a beautiful piece of vintage native craftsmanship and would be an unusual addition to either a collection of First Nation’s work or to a purse collection.
