Offered is a beautiful Great Lakes Ojibwe/Anishinaabe Quill Birch Bark and Sweetgrass Basket Box with a flower with a raised center and fancy quillwork on the sides. This is unsigned but has all the hallmarks of some of the quill box makers from Manitoulin Island (Wikwemikong Reserve) and Spanish River (Sagamok Reserve), particularly the Toulouse family. Sadly, she passed away a few years ago so her work will be harder and harder to find. The quill box measures 3 1/8 by 2 1/8. No missing quills or damage. 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.
