INCREDIBLE HISTORICAL HEIRLOOM FOR THAT EAGLE EYE COLLECTOR

This incredible offering consists of a rare SIGNED authentic 1915 Helen Dickerson, Masonville, CO coiled pine needle basket tray with wooden center in a feather stitch in very good condition. Helen Dickerson and her sister, Alice were early pioneers who learned how to make pine needle baskets from the Cherokee. Helen’s baskets can be found in museums such as Larimer County’s Fort Collins Museum, where research on Ms. Dickerson and her family can be done through their archives. This stunning beauty from the past measures 11 inches in length x 7.5 inches Wide x 1 inch high. There is some minimal loosening of stitches around one side where it meets the wood on the underside. See Pictures. Pictures are part of description.

I have always had a curious nature about humanity’s precedent and have spent most of my life from early childhood into adulthood searching out the treasures and secrets of our past; collecting them; researching them; and on occasion writing about them. I surround myself with them, wear them, display them, and tell other people about what I have discovered about their history.

When circumstances dictate, I must then pass on my treasures, knowledge, and collections to present generations; not for financial remuneration, but rather to spread our ancestral legacy to our progeny, so that the labors and riches of the past are not lost to the annals of changing times; but continue to future generations.
