Large Beautiful Cowlitz Polychrome Basket
This is a very old large fully imbricated Cowlitz huckleberry basket with a striking and beautiful polychrome design of four large triangles composed of multiple design elements in black, brown and natural material. The basket is oval in shape with an oval base with two rows of imbrication on the bottom. Two rows below the rim are several narrow openings for cordage to pass through. The basket is new to the market and has been in the same family here in Portland since the very early 20th C.
