Berry basket, ca. 1910

This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student at George Stevens Academy.

Description

This little basket is one of three made by Snow, in the early 20th century, for Dr. Henry Stebbins, of Seal Harbor Maine and his siblings when they were young children.

John Snow (1868-1937) lived most of his life, and raised his family, on Mount Desert Island. He would travel door to door selling both his own work and pieces made by other Wabanaki artisans. His work often features delicate trees and leaves.
