Oval Sweetgrass Basket with Quilled Cherries

Add this delightful Sweetgrass Basket to your collection!  The basket maker started with a Birchbark bottom and made the sides with rows of Sweetgrass.  The lid has a  Birchbark center surrounded by rows of Sweetgrass.  The basket maker created a Cherry design with Red & Green Porcupine Quills.  Additional Green and Light Blue Quills outline the edges of the lid  and the top of the Basket.    The lid attaches to the bottom with a thread in the back.  Two strands of fiber allow you to tie it closed at the front.
It measures 7.25" long x 5.25" wide and stands 2.5" tall.
This Basket came from a collection and is in very good condition. You will see minor Quill loss in the design and the edges.  One of a Kind!
