Description

For sale is a Native American bear grass dyed lidded basket with knob.
This basket is circa 1920s to 1940s and has red lines and blue geometric imbrication for design.
It is made from dyed bear grass with cedar bark around the edge that the lid fits onto.
This basket incorporates the wrapped twines technique which is able to produce small, delicate, finely tuned work such as this example.
There is a wonderful patina to this basket.
 The measurements are 3″ H X 5in diameter:   the basket is in very good condition for age.
Great collectible example of an early Makah or Nuu-chah-nulth basket of this vintage and condition.
I have been selling native art on line since 1999 so buy with confidence.
Thank you for looking and please follow my store as new art is added often.
