    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.

  • Anishinaabe quilled birch bark basket

    Anishinaabe Quilled Birch Bark Basket

    Anishinaabe Quilled Birch Bark Basket

    This birch bark basket with a floral design dates from the 1970’s. It is attributed to Susie Shagonaby, an Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) quill worker from Michigan. A photocopy of a typed letter about Ms. Shagonaby accompanies the basket.

    The basket is in good condition with two small areas of quill loss on the edges of the basket (one visible in a photo). The flower on the cover is surrounded by raindrops, perhaps. There are two vertical lines where the birch bark shows through, though this appears to be intentional.

    This is a wonderful example of Ojibwe quill work.

    Clara Keezer Brown Ash and Braided Sweetgrass Basket

    Clara Keezer Brown Ash and Sweetgrass Basket

    The Wabanaki tribes of Maine, many of whom lived inland during winter and on the coast in the summer, began making fancy baskets in the late 1800’s. Fancy baskets are more delicate than the utilitarian baskets made for carrying or storing goods. The tribal members sold utilitarian baskets, fancy baskets, canoes, and other wares to vacationers in the coastal resorts.

    Clara Keezer, a Passamaquoddy Indian born in 1930, was one of the women who kept the art of fancy basket making alive into the present. With the demise of coastal travel by the Indians, and the loss of the market, demand for fancy baskets dropped. Women like Clara Keezer held onto their basket making traditions, made innovations in designs, and share(d) their skills with younger generations.

    This basket was woven by Clara Keezer in 1997 from natural colored ash and braided sweetgrass.

  • Clara Keezer Handkerchief Basket

    Clara Keezer Handkerchief Basket

    The Wabanaki tribes of Maine, many of whom lived inland during winter and on the coast in the summer, began making fancy baskets in the late 1800’s. Fancy baskets are more delicate than the utilitarian baskets made for carrying goods. The tribal members sold their wares to vacationers in the coastal resorts. This design dates to the Victorian era, when ladies brought their handkerchiefs in their trunks to their summer residences or hotels.

    Clara Keezer, a Passamaquoddy Indian born in 1930, is one of the women who kept the art of fancy basket making alive into the present. With the demise of coastal travel by the Indians, and the loss of the market, demand for fancy baskets dropped. Women like Clara Keezer held onto their basket making traditions, made innovations in designs, and share(d) their skills with younger generations.

    This basket was woven by Clara Keezer in 2003 from natural colored ash and braided sweetgrass,
