  • Dorothy Savage Joseph birch bark tray

    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray

    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray

    This birch bark tray by Dorothy Savage Joseph, an Athabascan Indian originally from Holy Cross, Alaska, came from the estate of a gentleman who lived in Alaska during the late 1990s and early 2000s. It has a lot going for it, including a pleasing shape, good quality bark, nice contrast between the dark inner bark and the white outer bark, and beautifully dyed root lashings (likely spruce root) woven into a checked pattern. Aesthetically, it is a great vessel all around.

    Joseph is the author of Fishcamp. Click or tap here to see the book on Amazon.

    Clara Mattice Halibut Skin Basket

    Clara Mattice Halibut Skin Basket

    This fish skin basket came out of a collection of a gentleman who lived in Alaska for over twenty years and collected a number of Native American and Eskimo items. The basket was purchased in 2004 from the Alaska Native Medical Center shop. While we do not know Mattice’s origins, we expect she is or was Athabascan.

    Fish skin was used extensively by native Alaskans for waterproof clothing and containers. This basket has a sealskin rim and caribou fur adornment. It is very attractive and is in excellent condition, with no tears or damage.

    The photo with a white background depicts the translucency and glow of the basket when backlit.

    Note: because of marine mammal content, this item cannot be shipped outside of the United States.

    Harry Hank Baleen Basket

    Harry Hank is an Inupiaq weaver from Barrow, Alaska. Weaving baleen baskets runs in his family: his mother Marilyn Hank and his grandparents, Carl and Eunice Hank were all weavers. Most baleen weavers come from either Pt. Hope or Barrow, where bowhead whale hunting has been a tradition since the 1920’s, when the first baskets were made from this material.

    This is an even and tightly woven basket woven primarily from dark baleen, with white baleen binding on the cover. The polar bear finial is carved from walrus tusk.

    The basket was purchased in Alaska by a gentleman who resided in the state for over twenty years. It is accompanied by the Silver Hand label and tag, which certify the authenticity of Alaskan Native art.

    3 1/2 in. diameter, at its widest; 4 in. high, including finial.

    Please note that because of walrus tusk contents, this basket cannot be shipped to California or New York state. In addition, because of marine mammal material, it cannot be shipped out of the United States.
