SOLD

A good northwest birchbark and spruce root basket, likely 19th century. Painted seams similar to what you would find on birchbark canoes. showing good patination and age from use -- definitely not a piece intended for the tourist trade. Some loss to spruce root and minor flaking/lifting to some interior areas of the bark but a nice early survivor. 

Dimensions: 11.75"x9"x3.5"
