This vintage beaded Ojibwa tobacco/pipe bag is an authentic item dating from the 1940s. It was bought from a central Minnesota estate auction.
Bag is cotton with a 7” by 8” velvet bottom panel front and back. The pouch’s interior is also lined with cotton. Each panel has a different beaded flower design. The velvet panel also has a row of beading along the top and down the sides. The bottom of the bag has round beaded ball shapes with loops of beading falling from them.
Overall, this vintage pipe bag is in excellent condition. The only flaw noted is that two of the bottom beaded bunches have one or two missing beaded loops. The remainder of the beading is complete and tight.
This beautiful and usable tobacco/pipe bag would make for an excellent gift for the aficionado or collector of Ojibwa or Native American artifacts. Or, consider giving this bag to honor someone who has recently undergone a profound spiritual experience!
