This beaded brush is one of a pair that were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1920. The brush is Kiowa in origin. The leather cylinder encloses a stiff fiber and is decorated in a red, white and blue beaded geometric pattern. The brush would have been attached, possibly to a belt, by the leather straps trimmed in blue beads.
