This is a Timed Auction. Any Bids coming in within the last 60-seconds of the Lots Closing will have a 3-minute extension to the Closing of that Lot.

Property being sold is not new and being Sold “AS IS”! Dents, dings, scratches, missing stiches and other damage may be present—and is common—on used and vintage items. Items are available for preview well in advance of the auction. Please inspect thoroughly PRIOR to bidding.

Please look at all of the pictures. This is the Real Deal, a fully Beaded Sioux Purse. But it does have some condition issues that need to be looked at.
The Patented Date on the Clasp is showing September 1890.
Measures 8.5 inches-wide, 5-inches tall (not including beaded strap). The Beaded Strap measures at half way point 3.5-inches, so when you hold it from midpoint to the purse top is 3.5-inches.
