Wabanaki Sweetgrass Basket Pin Cushion

Regular price $28.00

I'm becoming a sucker for a sweet pin cushion, in addition to a nice Northeast Coast Native basket, so of course I love this little combination of the two! I believe this one dates to the early 20th century, with the basket woven of sweet grass on a naturally green dyed splint ash structure and the pin cushion a rosy pink velvet.

It has seen some use, with small holes in the velvet, but has plenty of years of use in it yet. 2 3/4" diameter x 1 3/8" tall. The basket itself is in excellent condition, with some fading to the green on the underside..
