Regalia Woman's Top Decor and Matching Skirt
From the private collection of D.D.Dennis
Age? Unknown? But, he bought it over 30 years ago.
This is a remarkable Dance Regalia item.
Mr. Dennis knows he bought it over 30 years ago to go into his private collection
of Native American Indian hand crafted items. He states the leather strapping is "Brain Tanned White Buckskin"
as this is what was told to him when he purchased it. It appears correct.
We believe upon close examination this appears to have been made from a used Pendleton blanket. Or very high quality Trade Cloth?
Our reasoning is based two fold?
1. The fabric itself has the strip border design: Classic Pendleton: See photos
2. This is heavy material and appears to be wool in nature.
Condition: Annlee examined and there are very minor things that could use a touch up.
The brain tanned white buckskin strapings/fringe need cleaning. (dry cleaning is suggested)
Jacket: This should fit small, and medium woman...possibly Large at max
Length: Front: Neck to bottom of bodice is 16 3/4 inches
Back: Neck to bottom of jacket 14 1/2 inches
Neck to end of the sleeve is 21 3/4 inches open sleeve end at cuff (not adjustable)
Around bottom of jacket 39 1/2 inches
It has beautiful and real bones decorating sleeves and front and back of the jacket and each hand sewn on.
The center piece is a Sterling Silver Conch that is stamped (signed) (Dule Triangles)
And, two sterling silver horse pins also stamped and signed.
A fringe of 4 1/2 inches crosses across the chest area as accent. See Photos
Bottom and Arm Fringe Length is 28 1/2 inches long from all points attached: See photos
This jacket is also highly decorated in hand seed beaded designs: Colors used: purple iridescent, light purple, blue,red,yellow and white translucent appear to be size 10 or 11 seed beads. Annlee believes an excellent expert in the art of seed beading did the beading; as it is very uniform tight and the designs are very static. Thousands of beautiful beads!
No zipper: Has Velcro and hook and eye closures which appear added after its original creation.
Skirt: Same material as the jacket.
Waist: 32 inches end to end: So should fit 29.30 and 31 inch waist
Has an 8 inch side zipper
Has the bone by the hem and beading by the hem.
Has a nice sewn split at bottom edge for movement. Very well done!
Fringe below the hem: Length is 7 inches long.
Clearly, this is a very unique and quite heavy Woman's Dance Regalia Outfit.
Condition is beautiful with only a good dry cleaning needed ASAP
We can imagine how spectacular this would be when viewed dancing around the Great Circle? Very popular design by Native Americans. In fact, like the one designed for Dances With Wolves film.
