Large Vintage Hooper Bay basket
A very large Eskimo basket made from Hooper Bay grasses. Natural and brown colored grasses.
The natural grass has a nice golden patina acquired over 40 + years. The darker grasses have faded slightly, as evidenced in the inside of the cover, but are still very attractive.
This lidded basket is likely the largest we have had. Probably dating to the 2nd or 3rd quarter of the 20th century, the basket is in good shape, with only minor loss of grasses, as seen in one photo.
9 in. high, including finial x 11 1/2 in. diameter at its widest.
