Tuscarora Tuesday

With all the dreaded heat and humidity we've been having, I thought a fan motif might cool us down.....

I've been told that is a strong possibility that this isn't a Tuscarora piece.  It is more likely Mohawk, due to the larger sized beads and the abundance of fringe.  Grant Jonathan (the owner of all the pieces featured on Tuscarora Tuesday) has quite a few Mohawk pieces in his collection - perhaps a Mohawk Monday would be appropriate for those!

Stay cool everyone -

Gosh, I was just thinking that I like this piece better than any other you posted. Sorry it might be Mohawk. Its wonderful, isn't it! I love the leaves. They are perfection.

Thanks for posting ALL of these TT pics.

Funny, I've meant to ask you if the Tuscarora Tuesday pieces that you've shared are from your collection?! What an *amazing collection* of vintage pieces!

The fan motif is beautiful and it's interesting that it might not be a Tuscarora piece and perhaps Mohawk. I really enjoy the history of vintage pieces. Hope you decide to go with Mohawk Monday!

Thanks, Lynn, and Grant, for sharing these beaded beauties...they are amazing and a real treasure to see!!! It is incredible what a generation before us was beading and thinking in their lifetime. XOX ~Lisa
