This is beaded awl case that is made of rawhide and buckskin and done in a lazy stitch and wrapped around the awl case. The beadwork is done in dark blue and white. The pattern is banded. The lid is beaded with a the same beaded pattern. Some of the beading is missing. There is a thong at the top of the lid that was used to attach it. There are two beaded flaps that hang down at the bottom of the case. This awl case was possibly used for a hair parter.
