Miniature Makah twined cedar and bear grass basket with lid. Round shape, measures 1 1/4"H x 1 1/4"W, features 2 eagles on the outside. This has a piece of paper inside that reads 'Guaranteed made by Indian Women of the Pacific Coast. The material used is called 'bear grass', grows in marshy places'. The colours have faded to the outside overtime as evidenced by the colours inside. The weaving is tight but there is a break on the bottom and on the top edge (photo 4). Finely woven, nice patina from age and use, beautiful example of Makah basketry. See my store for more Makah baskets, I will be listing more this week.
