Makah or Nootka Antique Lidded Basket With Polychrome Whales and Star
We are offering a nicely woven small pictorial lidded basket, constructed with classic plaited cedar bark base and finished with finely twined sea grass. This handsome example depicts the images of three whales in pink, green and purple. There is a star on the top of the lid in black and red. Measures 2" in diameter across the top of the lid and is 1 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.
