Large Fully Imbricated Plateau Huckleberry Basket
This is a beautiful fully imbricated oval huckleberry basket with leather loops on the front and back for attaching a tump line. Although baskets like this are generically referred to as Klickitat, the design on this basket is not a classic Klickitat pattern. Rather, this basket was probably made by either a Yakima or a Warm Springs weaver. It has a great overall chevron pattern with a very even and smooth surface and shows some staining along the bottom from use. Given its age and use, the basket is in excellent condition without any breaks along the rim and ears.
