Very Finely Woven Native American Aleut Attu Basketery Bottle (maybe a baby bottle) from an Aleutian Island. The Aleuts are also known for making elegant baskets.
In making baskets, the weavers used rye grass growing on the beaches. Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes. The stems of the grass were split with the fingernails to make threads, and some of the threads were dyed in order to make baskets with intricate woven designs.
Today, Aleut Attu baskets are considered to be among the finest in the world and are sought by both collectors and museums. There is one small area with a break in basket. For a closer look please look at the last photo.
The basket is in good condition overall with a break in one area just above the flower. Please review all the photos.
