Antique Rare MICMAC INDIAN Carrying BASKET, Ca1870, Ash Splint, HandMade, Porcupine Curls, With Attached Cover From Maine Exc Condition

$475.00

Very Rare HANDMADE Ash splint basket has a cover that is attached by running the

handle through the rim. Decorated with a decorative weave known as

“porcupine curls”. Fancy baskets became popular in the late 19th century,

when demand increased and tools to cut and shape them were invented.

The porcupine twist weave was first used around 1860. This ornamental

weave and its variants of curly and wort weaves involves twisting the

weaver as it is passed through the vertical standard to produce a bristling

point or curly ornamentation.
