Native American Wall Pocket
A diminutive size Native American wall hanging pocket in original salmon colored paint with yellow-green highlights. Woven from ash splint thin gauged weavers and wide stanners with a double reinforced rim with coiled wrapping.
The front is decorated with emphasis on the use of curlicue work exhibiting large weavers manipulated into twisted form, a decorative style of construction used by the Scaticook tribes during the 19th c.
Survives in an excellent state of condition with a fine untouched surface exhibiting historic, yet gently aged surface qualities. Eastern Algonkian, likely Scaticook in origin. Ca. 1875. 9"T.
