A real ethnographic piece, a very old California basket. This could be either Hupa or Yurok but this basket feels more Yurok to me. Old, darkened and very used, with leftover remnants of mush inside. The outside of the basket has imbricated designs and twined raised lines around the body of the bowl. Approximately 4″ x 8″ with wear and slight losses from age and use. A lovely example of traditional Native American basketry.
