Collection History:

Between 1901 and about 1930, Grace Nicholson maintained a curio shop in Pasadena, California, that specialized in Native California baskets and other items. During this period, she often visited Native communities to acquire pieces for her personal collection and the shop, and additionally documented her visits and the items with photography. Following her death, what remained in Nicholson's personal collection was inherited by her assistant, Thyra Maxwell (1903-1972), who sold many of the items to MAI in 1968. This print probably accompanied those objects.
