The 4in (10.5cm) wide pouch was given a possible attribution to the Great Lakes people, the Wyandot (better known as the Huron from The Last Of The Mohicans, in which they got a bad press).

It was consigned to the June 13 sale by a descendant of the traveller who brought it back from the US in the 19th century. It will return to America after selling on the phone at £4800.
