Karok Chalice Form Basket
Very well woven chalice form basket with closely spaced open weave bands around the body of the basket and the foot and a cross warp open section below the rim. The weaver was able to get an unusually dark reddish color from the woodwardia fern used throughout the body. The basket is in excellent condition with no damage to the open warps. This basket should appeal to collectors of Northern California baskets who like well woven earlier work.
