MAGNIFICENT UTE CRADLEBOARD. Ca. 1875-18

Lot 0441 Details

Description
MAGNIFICENT UTE CRADLEBOARD. Ca. 1875-1890. The most distinctive and beautiful Ute beaded item is the cradleboard. This wonderfully fine example includes rare flag motifs around the curvature of the top. Stained yellow for a girl. Finger-like rows on the flap covering the laces are done on early red and blue strouding with red 'white hearts', navy black unstable beads, greasy yellow, and green beads. Evident is the Transmontane style used from 1860-80. Red stroud trade cloth beaded in black and white at hood edge. The cross flap at top of the opening is geometrically beaded with later beads such as cut metallic, orangey red 'white hearts' and translucent blue and green. Attached are an umbilical fetish bead wrapped in white heart reds and blue with brass bead drops, a weasel claw amulet for safety in travel and strength, a miniature brass shoe sole and a small Victorian key. Fringe at back. Replaced laces, perhaps in the late 1800's. Provenance: Linked directly to Col. Eugene C. Haynes (1844-1922) of Centerville, Iowa. By 1878, Col. Haynes was a prosperous lawyer, who traveled to Colorado. His son, E. C. (Jack) Haynes, Jr., worked for the state in Alamosa where Ute resettlement was beginning. Two of his other children lived in Colorado: Mrs. Harry McCreary and Mrs. Miriam Robertson. Old Iowa newspaper accounts note in January, 1880, that Col. E.C. Haynes met the train carrying Utes who were sent to Washington to negotiate a treaty. Col. Haynes gifted the cradleboard to a C.J. Wilson. A damaged typewritten note to that effect is attached to the cradleboard stating it was collected by Co. Haynes with illegible information. Intriguing is "from . . . . . ay", the person who gave Col. Haynes the piece. Few known Utes have the last letter "ay" in their names. One is the well known Chief Ouray, a Tabegauche or Uncompahgre Ute, the group most likely to have produced this exceptional piece. 39"l.
