Item # 16-330

Antique round basket with lid. Believed to be from sub-arctic Canada or Alaska. Likely made by the Inuit or Athabascan people in early 1900's. Construction utilizes a coiled willow (?) rod from bottom to top that is bound by fine splint likely from conifer tree roots that are common to the region.

A similar basket is in the collection of the Pebody Museum of Yale University in Connecticut. The information presented here is from available data and is by no means complete and is left for the buyer to carry it further. It is an interesting quest.

The basket is in very good condition with no breaks or other obvious flaws. The lid fits snugly and is also in good condition. The basket has not been cleaned or treated with any preservatives and has a nice age-developed patina. A very nice colletible basket or for decortive accent or use.

Size is 8 inches in diameter by 5 inches high with lid in place.
