This is an unusual form of Seminole hand-craft ! We call it "SEMINOLE DOLL HEAD ON A COILED SEMINOLE WOVEN BASKET".The craftmanship is absolutely perfect ! The coiled basket is attached to a base of Palmetto leaves. The head is also made of palmetto leaves which is also attached to a base of palmetto leaves. Around the neck of the head are seven rings of small beads. Note the gorgeous earrings ! The entire piece is in PRISTINE condition. Note the design work holding the basket coils together !

The measurements are: 8 3/4 inches high of which 3 inches make up the head. The measures 6 1/4 inches wide.

With my great great great great grandmother a Seminole maiden, this is one of the Seminole artifacts I have collected over the years.

Note: The last picture shown is looking down into the interior of the basket.
