We're running 10-day auctions this coming week, so items will end on Wed. This is a beautiful antique Northern California Hupa, Karok, Yurok Indian Basket with a classic design that was woven on the older baskets from this region. This basket measures 3 1/4" tall by about 4" wide at widest point of bowl. This is a beautiful basket but it does have two areas of rim damage. Two notches on either side, and the deeper notch has a small tear stretching from the notch about 1/2"; the other also has a small split along dark edge of rim, also about 1/2".
But you can see it is a beautiful and authentic old Northern California basket. A note: We're all healthy here and are isolated and washing hands regularly. If you're worried just leave your packages in a garage or porch area for a few days before opening. Most of the items we sell come from our personal collection gathered over the years from our travels, from Native powwows and craft stores, antique shops, auctions and estate sales. Now that our kids are in college and beyond, we are letting some items go so others can enjoy them.
Then I'll send you a combined invoice. Sorry for the expense, but I've had items lost overseas when mailing first class and don't want to take the risk of losing items. I pack carefully and try to reuse materials to save on environmental impact.
I often double-box items with smaller gift boxes collected from various thrift stores. I reuse all that I receive and hope you will make use of the ones that come in your packages.
