This is one of three great early California baskets we're currently offering from the Pomo, Maidu , Mono , Yokuts and a Wintun tribes. This offering is for a very fine stunning old Californian Maidu tribe Indian basket dating from the early 1900's. The basket is woven from willow shoots and winter redbud shoots to produce the striking saw tooth design patterns that encircle the periphery.
These are the kind of old traditionally used Ethnographic intact specimens that I really love. The basket measures 11 1/4" D and stands 5 3/4" tall with some minor and expected wear and some stitch loss as expected around the top rim (please see photos) as expected with great age and use.
T his is an excellent stunning finely woven masterpiece. This stunning complex museum quality basket displays very well and will make a fine addition to anyone's collection. Please check out other current offerings including a great Tlingit, Haida argillite and Kwakiutl totem poles and some great early Inuit carvings. More than just a pretty picture.
