Tsimshian Basket

$ 195.00

Beautifully woven with geometric imbricated decoration, this basket was made primarily of red cedar root with the design in maiden Hair Fern. The design and material used in weaving it are typical of the The Coast Tsimshian people that live in Northern British Columbia and Southeastern Alaska. This basket was collected in Southern Alaska. It is in good condition, but has a small stain on the lid of the basket (see image 2).
