Maine State Museum, Artifact
Fragment of a red jacket cuff trimmed with handsewn fine white beads (a few blue beads form the center of flower petals) and green, ivory, blue and black ribbon. Probably Penobscot, possibly Maliseet. Zigzag top of cuff has white beads and black silk edging. Below that is a row of small white beads and a thin band of green silk applique. Below that is a band of beaded ribbon applique featuring two rows of peaks in green and blue silk, edged with black, yellow, green silk and white beads. Then follow two rows of white beaded double curves with petals or leaves at their centers, filled with blue beads.
