- Curator's comments
- Comment by Ruth Holmes Whitehead, March 1985. "Long man's sash of black velvet, backed with pink cotton. Border of faded red silk ribbon applique, elaborated with groups of three white seed beads at intervals. Based in one sector of double-curve motif, one sector Victorian floral motif; these alternate. The floral motif is a type named 'fat flower' by Jonathan King. The double-curves are typical of Maliseet work, tight coiled ends, like fiddlehead ferns. The beads used are blue, white, rose pink, mustard, crystal, pea green, coral, light blue, translucent green, and translucent gold."
