This is a 1900 picnic basket made by the Pima Indians. I have an appraisal for it dated 1989 written by a Santa Fe appraiser. The appraisal says the motif is known as the "rolling log" motif. The Pima Indians used the motif hundreds of years before Adolf started using it.
The top is dusty, I would love to clean it but this item is too fragile. After almost 120 years of use, it is about to crumble.
