Ref: 6010

SOLD

A particularly good miniature Nootka basket that has been very well-preserved, having been safely tucked inside a storage chest for the majority of its life. It is finely-woven and retains excellent colour. The basket's exterior depicts Wasco, a mythical half-wolf, half-whale creature believed to terrorize northerners on both land and sea. The image on this basket shows Wasco chasing a group of whalers in a boat. Other imagery on the basket includes sea birds. The basket is only 3.75" wide and 2" in height. No condition issues. 

Dimensions: 3.75"x2"
