Pit River Storage Basket 1910 - image 1 of 9

A classic but somewhat later Pit River-Wintu storage basket collected prior to World War I. Worked with conifer root and maiden hair fern, this beautiful basket exhibits fine workmanship with over fifteen stitches to the inch. The basket has two small one inch side splits and another almost invisible one along the base. It also has the slight edge damage along the rim so common to these early pieces. Despite this the basket presents very well in its finely worked polychrome designs of stepped and bordered diagonals with diamonds. Thin bands of finely worked red fern adorn the rim area and four bands along the bottom. It is a beautiful early piece worthy of any collection. 6 1/4" tall by 9" wide.
