The lot features a set of Indian hide moccasins with beadwork covering the entire surface being fully beaded across the top and bottoms and is from the Lakota Sioux Native American Indians from the 20th Century. The set shows an Indian tanned Buffalo hide construction with nice supple soft finish and the entire surface area being covered in geometric beadwork in a Buffalo track pattern, shown across the tops, sides, bottom, back, ankle and fancy top edge. Fully beaded moccasins are uncommon and were used exclusively for ceremonies. The set shows a Buffalo track geometric pattern with background in chalk white with colors in medium green, cobalt, greasy yellow, red, light blue, greasy Cheyenne pink and semi-transparent lilac. The set appears to be sinew sewn in part and is well preserved with soft hide and little to no bead loss, along with the tongue and tie strap still intact and soft as well. Each measures 8"L by 3.75"W by 2.25"H.
