Magnificent Rare Elizabeth Hickox, Karok basket with lid

Item#: 1539
This magnificent and rare Karok treasure basket by weaver Elizabeth Hickox is finely woven and is decorated with black geometric designs in maidenhair fern with yellow quill, dyed yellow with lichen, going around the outside. It has a matching knobbed cover. It is in perfect condition. Elizabeth Hickox (1874-1947) baskets stand out from among all other California Native baskets for their extreme delicacy as well as technical and aesthetic refinement. "Lizzie" was known as a virtuoso among her basket weaving peers and her works were marketed early on by premier merchants of Native American art and collected by both museums and well-to-do collectors. She developed a remarkably distinctive style of lidded baskets. This basket is a fine example of her exceptional work. Elizabeth Hickox baskets were marketed by the premier merchant for baskets, Grace Nicholson. Elizabeth's weaving may represent some of the finest twining ever done. Nicholson ledger number for the basket is attached to the bottom of the basket (#6752). Circa: 1915 Diameter: 7 1/2" Height: 6 1/2"
