This basket is one of many N. Indian baskets collected by the Doran family of N.
Washington over the past 40 yrs. Along with baskets, there are carvings, bead-work and various other artifacts that make up this wonderful collection. It is our privilege to be able to offer this collection to you on their behalf. So please save us to your favorite sellers list so that you'll be notified as we add new listings.This berry gathering basket is 7.5" tall and 9" in diameter. It has a round bottom and round top with braided rim. The designs are stacked rectangles.
It's made with the organic materials common to the region: Cedar and Spruce root. There is cord woven through the rim and soft cotton rope attached. Unfortunately we do not know who the weaver was. It's very old and used with signs of wear as pictured. We have not tried to clean it in any way - it is as-found.
Please examine the pictures carefully; we've tried to capture every angle for you. Another great example to add to your collection!
