The basket measures 5" tall and 7" in diameter at the top. It is a very finely twined basket made of spruce root and featuring false embroidered designs in a dyed, horizontal pattern as well as vertical embroidered designs that are the same natural color as the basket. The vertical designs appear on the interior of the basket unlike the false embroidery which only appears on the exterior. It is a pliable, fragile basket. We do find a rim tear that has been glued as pictured.Otherwise, it's in remarkable condition given it's age. Please examine the pictures carefully - we have provided photographs of every angle so you can determine the condition for yourself.
