CABINET CARD DEPICTING AN INDIAN WOMAN IN A HORNED BONNET HOLDING A WINCHESTER RIFLE:  This is a wonderful old studio image of a Native American Woman dressed in a beautiful elk tooth dress, wearing a buffalo horned and feathered bonnet and holding a Winchester rifle.  The style of the dress suggests she may be from the Southern Plains – Comanche, Kiowa or Southern Cheyenne – and the bonnet she is wearing might well have been her husband’s.   

Measuring 6” by 2”, this was originally printed in these dimensions and is not a cut down portion of a larger image – the finished edge is visible all the way around the card.  There is a hand written legend in pencil on the reverse “half Indian & white”, assuming to refer to the woman in the image.  The image is clear with no fading or damage and it is in overall excellent condition.   

A rare subject content, this armed Native American woman is dressed to the nines and her presence and stature is very evident, which combined with the Winchester rifle creates a very unusual and collectable image.  (C0087)  $550
