Bandolier bag of trade cloth covered with small glass beads, or seed beads, with designs of three different kinds of leaves. The leaf design on the strap is blue on a pink ground, on the flap it is pink on a blue ground, and on the bag it is blue on a white ground. All leaves, except for those on the white ground, are outlined with a row of white beads, which is characteristic of Delaware beadwork. The beaded fringes at the ends of the strap are decorated with vertical rows of pink and yellow diamonds, which are not outlined in white.
