found this unusual antique piece at an auction and the auctioneer
didn't even know what it was.
I was told it's Native American, but I'm not sure.........
Could it be African or Mexican instead?
It's made of crudely tooled leather (with hair on it still in places)
and micro beaded with colorful beads. Shaped like a Hansa.
The top has a horizontal "pocket", presumably to hang on a rod or such.
Is this Native American? Is it a warrior breast plate?
Thanks for your time and also please see my other postings, since I found
another possibly Indian rod with silvered thing on it awhile back that I
posted, but nobody knew what it was...................
