Blue & Green Porcupine Quill and Birch Bark Basket
We are offering a traditional Canadian Indian basket, made of porcupine quills, birch bark and sweetgrass, decorated with a figural white lotus surrounded by blue and green leaves. These baskets are a centuries-old tradition of decorating with quillwork. Today, only a handful of porcupine quill workers carry on the tradition of this intricate art form. Measures 2 1/4" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter. Signed on bottom. In excellent condition. No cracks, splits or discoloration.
