There is a small auction every two weeks
in the next small town over.
I usually try and preview it the day before and that way if there
isn't anything I REALLY want,
I don't go just for fun and end up buying lots of stuff I don't really want or need
just "because it was a screaming deal??"
Yesterday throwing all wisdom out the window,
I went to just watch the "treasures "
And ended up buying this........................
I am really not sure what this is.
It has two small pockets on the front, they are wool,
and edged with a red fabric that has frayed.....silk?
The embroidery on it doesn't look like thread.
Maybe hair? Horse?
Some of it has been dyed red.
There are horsehair tassels (dyed blue)
that are set in silver tubes,
and some of them are missing.
This is the back...........
lined with a red cotton, edged with a zigzag of red felt, there is a small pocket on
It's going to be fun researching this,
trying to find out age, tribe, purpose.
It was a box lot. Yup. That means there's
always the "rest of the box".......
I will probably try to send that drum home
with my grandson...........:)
A couple of things will go into the "I might make something out of that
someday " box.
But I don't need an airline flotation device
laying around here.
How does that even end up at an auction??
Off to the Goodwill donation box!!!
