What a treasure! This vintage handmade cross-stitch and beaded pelmet designed and created by a Native American or First Nations artisan in a tribal design is an absolute work of art. A pelmet is a decorative border of cloth fitted across the top of a window or door. The vintage native beaded pelmet is over 68 inches long, and measures 9 inches wide from the top to the bottom of the hanging beaded trim. Imagine how long it must have taken the artist to make! There are 24 individual cross-stitch points with a red, cream, green and black design. Each point has green and gold twisted trim. Twenty of the points have an elaborate glass bead design at the tip, comprised of 7 strands of clear glass beads twisted together. The four points on one end of the pelmet are missing their beading, but 20 are completely intact, measuring 55 inches (or 4.5 feet) in length. There is some water staining to the undecorated top of the pelmet, but the cross-stitch section is in great shape. There are also rusty nail hole marks every few inches along the top of the undecorated portion from hanging. This stunning piece of art could be used as a cornice for a large window, or how about as trim around the bottom of a table or ottoman? There are many possibilities but all we know is that it would be a stunning piece of native art to incorporate into a rustic home.
