This skillfully crafted wall pocket, possibly Métis in origin, has been delicately decorated with dyed porcupine quills. Measuring approx. 17 cm in length, it was likely used as a small wall ornament. The wall pocket is part of a collection of Métis and First Nations material from across western Canada. The collection may have originated with Orkneyman, John Inkster and his Métis wife Mary Sinclair or their son Colin.
