Large Native American Cherokee double-woven rivercane storage basket with lid by Rowena Bradley (1922-2003), square form with walnut and bloodroot dyed weavers. Retains the original Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual tag. 13 1/2" H x 10" W. 20th century. Biography (courtesy of West Carolina University Hunter Library): "Rowena Bradley (1922-2003) was the third generation of known basket weavers in her family. Both her grandmother, Mary Dobson and her mother, Nancy Bradley were accomplished at making baskets. Bradley is often cited as one of only a handful of Cherokee basket weavers who carried on the complex double weave technique in the 1930s and 1940s. Her baskets won numerous awards at the annual Cherokee Indian Fairs and an exhibition of her work was held at Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual in Cherokee, North Carolina, in 1974."
