Woven basket with designs. Basket is rectangular, long and thin, flaring slightly from bottom to rim, where remnants of flexible twisted cedar handles can be seen on one side, with a handle attached to the other side. The basket has a wide box weave in cedar bark on the base, and tightly wrapped grass on the body. Decoration consists of two encircling rows of red swastika designs along the top and bottom. One side has a scene of birds landing on a branch with foliage and red flowers. The opposite side shows a triangular pennant flag in purple with CANADA in orange. Purple flowers with green foliage sit at opposite corners of the image. (Note: basket has undergone repairs since the photo was taken.)


Collected by Charles Clark (1888-1967). Presumed to have been collected while he was a cannery manager and lighthouse keeper at Nootka in the 1920s.
