This is a wonderful antique basket made of ash splint with curly-que or porcupine twist detail, made by a Native American Indian of a Woodland tribe, perhaps Micmac, Pasamaquoddy or Penobscot but it might even be Iroquois, I’m not sure. This is a very old basket - you can tell by the thin splints, the complexity of the construction, the general appearance of the basket and that violet purple dye appears to me to be quite unusual. It measures 4 5/8” in height with a top diameter of 10 1/4”, exclusive of the curly-ques, and a diameter of 7 1/4” at the bottom. It is in very good condition with a few missing curly-ques (see last close-up photo) and a dark mark in the middle of the exterior (see second to last photo). Otherwise, this is intact and looks great. This is a lovely display piece - many hours of work went into making this wonderful example of Native American Indian handwork!
