Hindman Auctions’ Native American Art Auction realizes over $1 million

On September 17, Hindman Auctions’ Native American Art auction achieved over $1 million. Strong engagement with beadwork, pottery and textiles drove remarkable results. The sale saw an outstanding sell-through rate of 93 percent and competitive bidding activity was seen throughout. Property from the Collection of Michelle Smith, Washington, D.C., the Mark and Linda Miller Collection, and the Collection of Bruce and Claire Montgomerie saw fantastic bidding engagement. “We were absolutely thrilled to see the enthusiasm of the collecting community towards the sale,” shared Hindman’s Director of Native American Art Danica Farnand. “A particularly exciting lot, and a favorite of mine, were the Cheyenne possible bags. They are in near perfect condition and the color pallet used is stunning.” A matched pair of late 19th century Cheyenne beaded hide possible bags (lot 50) emerged
