These two beadwork pieces, possibly arm or leg bands for dance regalia, were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2002. The geometric pattern measures 12 3/8" long. The red yarn and black thread tassels range from 1/2" to 3" long. The donor was the daughter-in-law of Henry Lueck, who was a partner in the Johnson and Lueck Store in Netawaka, Kansas, at the turn of the century. Some of the items in the collection may have been taken in trade by Mr. Lueck, but most were purchased from his Potawatomi customers.

Date: 1893-1897
