Antique Fine Northern California Indian Basket HUPA Tribe
This unique basket measures 4.5 tall by 5 in diameter and is attributed to the Hupa Tribe of Northern California. This basket was used as to carry berries / fruit / nuts. Take notice to the woven placed hole at the base of the bowl, this enabled dirt to pass. The basket is made of pine root, squaw grass and maiden hair fern. The Hupa arrived in northern California in roughly 1000 A. The women made the baskets and the men made wooden bowls as well as tools. There is a tear on the side of the cup and some weaving is missing from the circular ends of the pedestal base. The bottom inside of the cup has a woven open hole. The basket is of the Hupa tribe of California. The basket was used for carrying or storage of fruits (berries), acorns, nuts, seeds and greens.

The pedestal doesn't serve a useful purpose, except for standing and removing dirt or other materials from the contents of the basket - there is a small hole at the bottom of the cup for such.
