I have just acquired Estate Attic Find! beautiful late 1800’s early 1900’s South Western Native American Indian basket collection. I have over 20 pieces, all are stunning. They are all hand-made by Native American Indians. Basket-weaving is one of the oldest known Native American crafts. There are ancient Indian baskets from the Southwest that have been identified by archaeologists as nearly 8000+ years old. Most Native American art, there were originally multiple distinct basketry traditions in North America. Different tribes used different materials, weaving techniques, basket shapes, and characteristic patterns.
