The glass lantern slide is of a beaded pouch. The pouch is hexagonal in shape and has a dark colored field decorated with beadwork. The beadwork is in the shape of a white vine with four four-leaf clover or flower shapes in green and outlined in white. In the center of the vine are two oblong flowers or leaves that are purple and green with white centers. There are two more small white leaf shapes close to the bottom of the pouch.

Note:The labels were affixed to the slide upside-down.
