Figural Fully Imbricated Puget Sound Basket
This is a beautiful oval Puget Sound fully imbricated huckleberry basket with four staggered rows of standing figures around it. It has a band of stepped designs just under the rim and three rows of beading around the base and a single vertical band of three triangles going up the side. It has two thick leather loops on one side for attaching a tump line. It is from the area around Seattle, possibly Suquamish or Snoqualmie. It is in excellent condition and a great piece for a collector of imbricated baskets.
