Woman's three sided tobacco bag
A large elongated leather drawstring bag, comprised of three shaped sides that come to a point at the bottom. Each of the three sides are self-fringed and beaded with a floral pattern with elements that vary from side to side. The top opening is edged with beads and the pointed bottom is suspended with a beaded leather thong that terminates in six metal ornaments, each of which contains fragments of blue wool yarn. The bag was collected at the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, North Dakota, circa 1900.
