Excerpt from the Thaw Catalog: This shotpouch is a typical example of the black-dyed skin pouch type used by those western Lenape (Delaware) in the 1820s. The type reveals strong influence from Great Lakes Indian art in its general shape and the layout of the quillworked decoration. However, the decorative patterns are quite distinct; instead of Thunderbirds and Horned Panthers these Lenape (Delaware) patterns are usually of a highly abstract character. Sotheby's (London) 1991, lot 89; Van Norman Turano February 1992, p.46-B.
