    I got this it was dried up and brittle falling apart every I time tough it would crack. I re hydrated asked a reptile taxidermist how, and reformed it to what you see. Is there anyway to figure who made it? how old? 14" tall 12" wide 4 1/2" deep.

      are you sure it's snakeskin? it looks Aleut or Athabaskan, but if it's snakeskin, then it's probably southwestern. interesting!

      Very interesting as I would swear it came from the waaay north of Alaska.erhaps the maker came from the way North of Alaska and either made it or taught their daughter how to make it? The style is pretty clearly from the Aluts, Inuits or other maker of this type of Mukluk in my uneducated opinion. Beautiful no matter where it came from.
