KLICKITAT BASKETRY “Cone” Huckle Berry Gathering Basket


Regular price $1,400.00

A basketry Klickitat cone that I would date to 1920.  Constructed of split cedar root bundles and sewing strands.  The design is of Bear Grass and dyed cedar bark in what is described as imbrication. The basket exhibits huckleberry stains from years of use and buckskin loops for tumpline attachment when carrying in the field.  A special tribute to Mary Dodds Schlick who we can thank for the knowledge of Colombia River Basketry from her book of the same name. Mary died March 17, 2020
