Antique Early 20th Century Lg 9.5" x 6.5" Makah Nootka Lidded Basket Seated Elk

Antique Early 20th Century Lg 9.5" x 6.5" Makah Nootka Lidded Basket Seated Elk

We are offering a nicely woven large pictorial Makah/Nootka lidded basket, constructed with classic plaited cedar bark base and finished with finely twined sea grass. Early 20th century of either U.S. or Canadian origin, this handsome example depicts the images of a large brown seated elk with bold colorful linear geometric designs in red, green and purple. There are concentric and swirling designs on the top of the lid in the same colors. Measures 9 1/2" in diameter across the top of the lid and is6 1/2" tall to the top. In very good condition. The top of the lid is somewhat muted, the sides of the lid and the basket colors are bright and vivid as shown. Overall nice patina. There are about a half a dozen tiny to small splits on the side of the lid only, no other visible issues. No other splits, no cracks or other damage
