Vintage Cherokee Crafted Basket

History In Your Hands!
"Cherokee basketry began thousands of years ago and were a means of storing goods, food stuffs and we're used for other essential tasks.
Cherokee basketry has evolved into a complex and highly stylized art form, requiring a lifetime to master.
Cherokee baskets are still made from all natural materials, readily available in the hardwood forests of the ancestral homeland. Materials such as; Cane, white oak, hickory bark, and honeysuckle.
Original dyes were black walnut and blood root. Later, butternut was added for black, yellow root for yellow, and broom sedge for orange as basketry transitioned to a coveted art form.
The Cherokee basket is represented by several types. The most popular style is the “double-wall” basket" (source; Cherokee Heritage Center, Oklahoma)

🌻A recent arrival at out Texas gallery is this lovely old Cherokee basket circa 1970's. A classic craft, the basket measures approximately 10 inches tall.
This old Cherokee basket is an excellent ambassador for the Cherokee culture and is history in your hands.
