Very Fine Late 1800 to 1900 Native American Plains Salt and Pepper (style of beading utilizing mix beads or left over beads). Umbilical Fetish Lizard with 10 Tin Cones. This type of beading was common during late 1800 to early 1900. Most of the beading was done using sinew but thread was used on the head. I have had many umbilical fetish but never in salt and pepper style of beading.
Very fine early example in fine condition. Item is in good condition overall for age with no visible bead loss. Please see photos as part of description.
