WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!This is a simply spectacular Northwest Chinook Pine neddle and seagrass native basket.Circa 1930s. It measures 4" tall and 6" wide. The details in the weave are incredible!!!!!!!!!! This comes from the Columbia river in Washington State. It has the tightest weave possible. My mother worked for the Alaskan Federation Of Natives for twenty five years, She often travelled outside of Alaska to meet with Elders and the Native people on conferences. She was given this Chinook basket by Marie Bellows while in the state of Washington on conference in 1972. I will include a photo copy of Marie. This wonderful basket is in mint condition, As my mother kept all of her collections in glass cases.................... I have not put a reserve hoping only knowledgable and serious bidders will prevail............................
