Beadwork from the Lueck Donation

Beadwork from the Lueck Donation
Date: 1893-1897

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.

Date: 1893-1897
This pipestone pipe tomahawk was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2002. Fragments of the wooden handle remain within the pipe. The blade portion is decorated on both sides with different floral motifs. Though the piece was likely made for trade, traces of tobacco residue, called dottle, within the pipe bowl indicate that it was smoked. 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.
