Winnebago Star Little Girl Ceremonial Dress - $500 (Clarkdale)

condition: like new
This beaded dress was made by the artist, Ruby, who was inspired by the beauty of ancient pieces created largely by various Plain’s and Eastern Tribes during the late 1700’s through the 1800’s. Having seen modern reproductions similar to her work that were selling for $4,500 - $5,500, one of her goals was to make reproductions and make them available for a fraction of those prices. This is not Loom Work like much of the art one finds these days. Rather, these beads are hand sewn onto the leather just as was done by ancient peoples. While Ruby often duplicated ancient designs, she also often combined that with her own artistic license. This piece includes approximately 26,972 beads. While it was made for artwork, it could actually be worn. This is a piece from Ruby’s private collection. Since she is not in business and is asking comparatively little for her work, unfortunately, all sales are final.

Scammers: Don't waste your time or mine. Will sell for cash only and I follow all Craigslist security procedures without exception – period!
