Indian Pow Wow Dress Real Buck Skin & Beaded Jewelry, Shoes, Belts, Regalia:
VINTAGE NATIVE AMERICAN POWWOW DANCE REGALIA with beaded jewelry . My girlfriend of 73 yrs said she’s had it over 30 yrs she picked it up at an estate sale . I measured the dress, the best I can. The belt design from 30-34 inch waist has strings on it which are 6 inches to tie. so waist from 30 inch to 34, you can add strings to make it wider. the top of the dress to the bottom is 4 Ft. The seam to seam on the side of the dress is 40 inches. I have this on a sewing adjustable frame , it looked great from 32 inch bust to a 40. Someone ask me what they thought the size was . I am 174 lbs nope. I would say from small to medium. You can tie the belt to 30 inchs and it will be perfect to 34 inches.There is even hair pieces , a bag , a animal skin of some sort with abalone, a necklace and shoes., hair pieces. I am limited to what I can put in this ad. Its not authenticated, I have no clue who did this or what tribe.Only can guess and I had a Indian Historian and Author of Indian books. Here is a little tid bit on the item: Nice regalia. It is made by the Crow or one of the Plateau tribes. or Great Basin.... perhaps Paiute, Nevada. It is old, but not that old, but a nice set of regalia.This was made to be used, maybe the owner died or became elderly or it no longer fitted. He noticed that it was of high quality work.Its a beautiful set.Another person from another site , she is an Indian and said this: They dance at PowWow's: This is a southern plains style pow wow regelia. Hand made and in very good condition, also your beadwork is excellent quality. That hide was probably smoked in ft. Hall ID, then assembled somewhere else. Beadwork also looks like FT. Hall, they have some of the best. Used for PowWow. It's a rez in Idaho. Excellent hides and beadwork.This is all I know. You will have to look. I also contacted a museum, they told me the same thing and an sale house is willing to list it. I have also listed a matching Knife case on here. Not sure why it matches the beads for a PowWow dress. I am selling as is, I will insure this for the amount of sale and will pay for shipping. I am selling this for the 73 old lady. I don't know much about it. One lady wanted it for a wedding dress ,pretty cool , an sale house and antique store will list it. Was told the purse could for 1200. I honestly have not clue who made this. I forgot to point out the shoe needs to be stitched up seams came loose. WHO KNOWS MAYBE SOME RICH PERSON WILL BUY IT FOR A Halloween OUTFIT. LOL. So the price in ad is for shipping with insurance. I DO NOT SHIP OUT OF THE US.
