Quilled & Beaded Umbilical Cord Fetish

Pre 1920 fetish, with a quilled center,6 beaded legs and belly stitch on the underside. Old color beads, white heart reds, waxy yellow, eyes are larger white heart reds. It is sinew sewn and no beads missing, great patina. Each leg has two drops with tin cones with white horse hair. The fetish measures 5 1/2" long by 3" wide with 2 1/2" diameter quilled center. Legs are 2 1/2" long by 1/4" diameter with 3" long drops. I'm guessing this is a water bug? This is from a Wyoming estate. Price: $850
