Quileute Basket

This is a very handsome and well made early basket with two rows of cedar bark beading, one below the rim and the other above the base bordered by a narrow red band and a narrow green band.  Around the middle of the basket is a slightly wider band of natural beargrass with meandering design in the middle.  The upper half of this design is in a possibly berry dyed maroon red and the lower half in black.  This basket is in excellent condition and is a really good example of the quality of work done non the Northern Washington coast in the early 20th C.
