PICKERING 6-27-2000 Anthropology Conservation Lab records identify this as a sandal-shaped object with predominantly yellow beadwork, some rose, blue and green. It appears to be a Niagara Falls-style souvenir beadwork object, and may be a wall hanging/wall holder of some kind, perhaps a whisk broom holder? See pp. 18-19 in Elliott, Dolores N. 2002.
