Wool bandolier bag with floral appliqued beadwork and red wool fringe / Judy Coser

Curatorial Remarks

The three points on the end of the shoulder strap is a possible feature of Southeastern bandolier bags. These emulate the ammunition bags that European soldiers carried. The isolated design patterns on the strap are diagnostic of Southeastern woodland groups.
