Antique Native American Indian Northwest Coast Tlingit Alaska Rattle Top Basket
Decorated with a bold band of geometric patterning in false embroidery of purple (maidenhair fern), red (dyed grass) and gold (dyed grass) around the basket body, with a fancy finished edge. The interior of the basket body retains a very rare feature -- the sewn-in cardboard circular guide used by the weaver. The lid is a stunner, with complex false embroidered decoration.

The rattle top lid is filled (from the sound of the rattle) with small pebbles. Basket is overall in very good condition with a light circular stain 1/4 Dia.

On the interior of the basket body, a very hard to see split that runs around the edge of the lid (about 2-1/2" L), and another very fine split around the edge opposite of the other split (about 1/2" L) (I've tried very hard to capture these splits in my provided photos, but is is difficult to discern). Please see photos to best ascertain condition, and please feel free to ask questions.

Basket measures roughly 3" H x 5" Dia. Please feel free to ask questions. Please see my other Native American listings!
