Early Pima or Papago Handled and Lidded Basket circa 1910 A2608

Regular price $750.00
This early finely detailed basket is certainly interesting. Its lid is gone and its handles were worn off. Only the basket itself remains with pictorial figures of scorpions and other creatures adorning it. Stable but clearly a delicate artifact or shelf sitter. It is  still extremely decorative so we couldn't turn it down. Now on offer in as is condition.
9" x 10" x 10".
Historic Papago (now known as the Tohono O'odham) handwoven basket by an unknown artist. The Tohono O'odham, located in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Mexico, are also known for their fine basketry. ... The coiled baskets are made with bundled willow twigs and wrapped with yucca and devil's claw.
