Very fine old Northwest Coast Salish or Thompson River lidded Indian miniature storage basket circa 1900. This striking basket would have been either made for a special granddaughter or perhaps a salesman type sample showing the master weavers skill, or perhaps to store her small weavers tools The basket is finely woven from split cedar bark and root, with the imbricated pattern done in natural and dyed bear grasses to produce the stunning intricate design that encircles the periphery and lid. The use of green as an imbricated color is exceedingly rare.

The design features vertically ascending rows of flower designs. The basket has a great overall patina that one loves to see in early basketry This stunning museum quality basket displays very well and will make a fine addition to anyone's collection. The basket came from the Peter Corey collection the famed curator of the Sheldon Jackson museum in Sitka. Please check out other current offerings including a great Tlingit, Haida argillite and Kwakiutl totem poles and some great early Inuit carvings.
