Rare Northwest Coast Makah Nootka Indian Abalone Shell Basket Native American
Is a rare vintage Makah Nootka Nuu-chah-nulth Indian Abalone Shell Basket. You don’t find these shell baskets very often. This came from the Northwest Coast of either the US or Canada. The basket measures approx. 4″ long, 3″ across, and about 1 at tallest point. The chain-like design is still fairly vivid. It probably dates to first half of 20th Century. It is in nice condition for age with very little fading. E rough/rubbed area on bottom and on one side and a few tiny nicks to rim. This is something that went into effect on Jan.
