The feather base are lines with a thick row of matching black, red and yellow fluffs. The center rosette is hand sewn with seed beads. Patterns may vary slightly.


Mystic Sunset Bustle Combo.

Mystic Sunset Bustle Combo

The Mystic Sunset War Bonnet and Bustle Combo are an elegant pair with fine craftsmanship using only natural materials.

Each feather is meticulously hand painted and decorated with leather spots and genuine horse hair.

There is a super thick row of black, yellow and red fluffs along the feather base.

The brow band and matching rosettes are hand beaded, and a beaded drape of bells and brass fall under the brow band.

The drops are Ringtail cat tails. These are hard to get anymore so they may be substituted for rabbit fur or fox tails.

Accompanied with the fur drops are beads and fringed leather for added decoration.

The matching bustle features a hand sewn beaded center rosette. This is a beautiful couple. The picture also shows a black horn hair pipe and brass breastplate choker which is sold separately.

Sun Bonnet and Bustle Combo

Navajo made and the most beautiful, Red Sun War Bonnet and Bustle Combo I've seen in a very long time.

The bonnet has a hand painted black stripe down the quill of every red feather, an extra wide brow band using seed beads, and matching rosettes.

Coyote fur drops on either side along with smaller feathers, glass crow beads, brass beads and brass cones.

The feather tips are adorned with black spots and genuine horse hair. They just don't come any better than this!

The matching bustle has 30 of the same type of hand painted feathers, red with the black strip down the quill and black spots with horse hair on each feather tip. It measures a full 29" in width. The center features a matching, hand beaded rosette.

Pictured with this combo is a breastplate choker that is not included in this sale.

Thunderbird Bonnet and Bustle Combo.

Thunderbird Bonnet and Bustle Combo

The Thunderbird War Bonnet and Bustle Combo feature master craftsmanship.

This bonnet is made using over 40 high quality feathers, which are tipped with white leather spots, beige feather fluffs and genuine horsehair.

The base row of feather fluffs, black, beige, orange and white, are so thick it resembles a fur hide. Added to that are Lady Amherst Pheasant tail feathers for a bright contrast of color atop the black base feathers.

The brow band features a full color Thunderbird to match the bonnets coloring, along with matching hand beaded rosettes. Genuine Coyote tails are used for the drops at either side, along with leather strips with glass crow beads.

The Thunderbird Bustle is made in the same fashion as the bonnet. Together, these two items are a true masterpiece.
