Native American – Ojibwa – Box
North of Great Lakes
Circa late 19th – early 20th Century
Superbly crafted porcupine quilled on birch bark covered box. The surface of this box has a wonderful quill decoration to include floral and hearts on a unusual hexagon form. Round and oval lidded boxes are more frequently found. Great Lakes Native Americans, a distinctive aspect of Ojibwa, crafted birchbark quill work generally resembling that of the Northern Woodlands, but the Ojibwa craft was more refined in this art.
From Old Upstate NY Collection. Very Good Condition.
