Tall basket with braided sweetgrass
A very stately basket by the late Sylvia Gabriel. Sylvia, her mother Mary, and her sister Deborah Brooks are wonderful examples of multi-generational basket making in the Wabanaki communities.
The braided sweetgrass on the top part of the basket and on the cover are time consuming to braid and weave, yet they add a beautiful decorative touch.
Basket is 8 1/4″ high, to the top of the culrs on the cover; 7″ diameter at its widest, tapering to 4 1/2″ at the bottom.
