Native American splint basket (c. 1900)
Native American Winnebago/Ho-chunk hand carved & woven ash splint basket with loop handle. The rim of the basket is captured by two carved and bent ash splines with 1/4" lashing capturing the vertical splines. The splines have been bent to create a flat bottom, and the loop handle has been notch carved and bent. The side lashings are 1/4" to the bottom of the sides where a 1" wide spline defines the base. From traces on the interior lashings we can see that the middle bands were dyed but are now faded.
Native American, Winnebago/Ho-Chunk, circa 1880-1910.
Condition: Basket is in as made condition with some fading and oxidation of the ash. Wear commensurate with age and use.
Dimensions: 15-1/2" L x 9" W x 10" H (plus 6" tall loop handle)
Tear sheets are available on request.
