The basket is of twined construction on a carcass of hazel, this overlaid with beargrass to form a light background, and with maidenhair fern used to form the pattern of interlocked arrows in black /dark purple. The pattern is only visible to the exterior, this being achieved by the use of a complicated half twist overlaid technique used by the peoples of this region. This basket is of traditional form and was made by and for use by the Hupa people.

It was not made for sale. Although not in perfect condition it is still the most beautiful I have encountered.

The accuracy of construction, fineness of weave and general power and impact of the pattern clearly identify this example as a museum quality piece. This basket has been in the collection of the British sculptor Henry H. Clyne since the early 1960's. Diameter at widest point: 15cm Height: 9.5cm All items are guaranteed to be genuine and as described.
