1325-04 Makah indian Basket with Lid c. 1890
Cedar and Bear Grass
2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches
An early example with the water serpent head repeated three times; with duck motif on lid; somewhat faded and with strong patina, although images are still strong. With damage to the interior lip seat not affecting viewing when lid is on; otherwise excellent condition. The interior lip seat is almost completely detached, but can be propped up as seen in photographs.
