California Native American Mission Gathering Basket circa 1900
Distinguished by its scoop or racquet shape, this ovoid basket shows how precisely adapted Native American baskets were to place and use. These objects of utility and, yes, art, put modern designers to shame, on the count of beauty alone. We are particularly drawn to artifacts that display the evidence of use. They simply have soul.
Fine to good used condition. 3 x 10 1/2 x 13 1/2.
