When I first started placing items on this site, I put multiple pics up on the same part and only showed one pic of each basket. I wanted to do some over so I could add more detailed pictures of them. Hope nobody minds.

This is a beaded knife sheath I have had for about 5 years now. It is made of leather with red, green,"greasy"yellow, black and white seed beads sewn on, and probably made around the year 1910. It has a tie on the back for placing either on your belt or around the neck. The stitching for the beads is called a "lazy stitch". It is almost 9 inches long. I love the colors in this, and there is no damage or bead loss at all, there is a difference in the back of the sheath though due to it being worn alot. The leather on the back is darker in color because of that. Hope you enjoy the more detailed pics.
