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.
