How this basket made its way from Apache territory to that trading post will forever remain a mystery, although the basket has remained within the same family since that time. The basket is a beautiful polychrome decorated one with wonderful patina. As you can see, it does have some damage, nearly all of which is confined to the two uppermost coils -- I suspect there are individuals who can repair such damage.There are a couple other very small areas of loss but these are quite insignificant. The basket has retained very good shape and strength over its time. We are not experts in basketry as we are general antiques dealers, so please feel free to ask any questions.
