Pictorial Cat Beaded Bandolier Panel

Unique Chippewa/Ojibwa (Native American) pictorial beaded pouch panel from a bandolier bag.  This piece is unusual because of the asymmetric composition of the floral and leaf decorations and the addition of a single cat element in the lower right corner.  The bandolier panel is constructed of trade wool and cotton with wool tape edging, and glass trade beads. Circa 1870-80's.  Very good condition, soiling/staining to the rear wool cloth; would have originally had a shoulder strap.
