From the Northwest Coast of Alaska comes this charming, light-colored wooden trinket box. The tile depicting the spirit of orca was designed and made by Haida artist Chris Mahan in the late 1980s. The lid of the box is not hinged, and the title of the tile as well as the artist’s signature appear on the bottom edge of the tile, left and right corners respectively.
This trinket box is in excellent vintage condition. The tile bearing the orca image is free of chips, scratches and cracks. The wood has just a few minor scuffs.
The beautiful box would make for a wonderful decorative addition to one’s bedroom, dressing room, living room or home office. If you collect artifacts from Northwest Coast or Alaskan Native American artists, this box would be great to add to your collection.
