A very fine Shamanic medicine container made by a Cree Medicine Man in the mid 1800's, complete with its original contents. The parfleche (deerskin rawhide) material was shaped with exquisite craftsmanship into a small circular box with a tightly fitting lid. The contents of the pouch are the original materials used for healing incantations and include twigs, bark, sap and what appears to be seeds. This authentic ethnographic treasure is in excellent condition and would be a wonderful addition to the finest collection.
Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
It measures: 2 5/8" wide by 2" high. Weight is 1 1/5 ounces.
