Item: Northwest Coast Salish Lidded Coiled BasketDate/Period: late 19th/early 20th centuryMaterials: sea grassSize: 5.75?W × 5.75?D × 5.25?H
Beautifully proportioned and in very good condition, this is a very fine Northwest Coast Salish tightly coiled lidded basket from the late 19th or early 20th century. Salish weavers are well known for their coiled baskets, often decorated with geometric motifs as was this one. Made of sea grass, the basket's exterior is a variegated honey color with faded red medallion and red and blue striping. The interior of the lid and body reveals the stunning original, vividly colored pattern in red, blue, green and orange. An example of exquisite craft and an embodiment of care, time, labor, and keen attention to detail.
