Native American Hand Beaded Sheath w Antique Knife
Local Native American beadwork artist Jarred Lanz, Oglala Lakota Nation, beaded this sheath in a style used by the Cheyenne Nation.
Jarred uses old stock bead colors, they are hand cut and harder to work with. He attaches his beadwork to tanned deer leather, adds a twisted leather handle and a long fringe tail with metal beads. The actual sheath measures 11 inches long by 4 inches wide by 1 inch deep.
Jarred finishes this piece with an antique skinners knife with wooden handle, a style of knife that was heavily traded for.
Length 25 | Width 4 | Deep 1 inches.
Length is measured from the top of the handle to the bottom of the leather fringe tail.
All measurements are approximate.
