This 1910-1912 S110 Pillow Top American Indian 23x23 silk is a glorious portrayal of those who helped shape the Old West. The artistic merits of this condition sensitive artifact are undeniable. In the center of the blank-backed silk blanket is a “46 star” United States flag. Surrounding the American flag is red stitching encircled by a native design. A series of ten 3x5 captions celebrating the figures and customs of Native American life is also individually stitched. Prominent American Indians portrayed are Sitting Bull, Osceola, Rain in the Face and Black Hawk. Four native designs (eagle, dancer and bow and arrow) adorn the middle edges and top right and left corners, while the bottom right corner bears the number 5. A clear stitched multi-colored border frames this piece. While the fabric does show signs of aging, along with moderate fraying and visible pinholes on the outermost corners and borders, this antiquity has survived the decades quite well. For the American Indian enthusiast, this difficult keepsake is certain to please.
