The lot features a set of circa 1950's Montana Blackfeet Native American Indian beaded hide men's moccasins. The set shows thick hard soles crafted from harness saddle leather and has a nice foot worn patina. The tops show a combination of trade clothe and tanned leather hide which are accented by traditional geometric Montana Blackfoot / Blackfeet beadwork done in glass trade pony beads all dating to the mid-century. The beads have a sky padre light blue background with pattern in black, cobalt, red, orange, and yellow. The set is thread sewn and has some calico trade clothe lining on one moccasin. Overall condition is good with no major damages, slight bead loss but well kept with soft hides. Each measures 11"L across the sole by 4.5"W by 3"H.
