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

c.  1910
