Quilled cuffs
Description A pair of leather arm cuffs, possibly Dakota, with a red and white beaded edge and elaborate quillwork in a patriotic design with crossed United States flags and a yellow star on each cuff, circa the mid-20th century or earlier. Each cuff has leather thong ties and hanging quill-wrapped strips with tin tinkle cones filled with dyed red feathers. Both cuffs have quill loss due to insects.
