Fully Imbricated Puget Sound Basket
h. 4 1/4"; l. 5 1/8"; w. 4 3/4"
A beautiful small oval fully imbricated polychrome Puget Sound basket with exceptionally fine imbrication. The basket was made by either a Nisqually or Puyallup basket maker. The diamond design, which is repeated four times around the basket has three different materials in it. The black is horsetail root; the light colored areas are bear grass and the brown used in the interior of the design appears to be cherry bark. This is a great basket for someone who appreciates the finer imbrication seen on the earlier baskets
