Eskimo Tanned Hide Vest 19th Century

Lot 0006
This is an excellent Eskimo Northwest Coast Native American Indian vest attributed to the 19th Century. The vest shows an Indian tanned hide construction with unique art appeal fringed shoulders and pockets and trade clothe pockets. The vest shows two ground carved round bone buttons and various patched holes. Eskimo and Northwest Coast clothing of this type, very utilitarian and plain, is very uncommon as most clothing was a heavy fur or intricately beaded piece. The piece shows overall good condition for its age. Trade thread sewn. Measures overall 22"x23".
