Medicinal belt pouch

Belt pouch. Inside the pouch are some sections of osha root, wild celery, and a plant known to the Nez Perce as "kous." It is a medicinal root used spiritually as well as for many physical ailments. Some of the pieces are perforated as if to string them up as beads-who knows? Also, a small package of botanicals such as this might have been used as a perfume.

PERIOD: Circa 1900

ORIGIN: Coeur d'Alene or Nez Perce


PRICE $ 3,500
