Certainly the largest Native American basket I have ever seen. Woodlands or Eastern Tribe, circa 1900-1920. The decoration is known as "potato-stamp" as a potato or other easily carved object was created and dipped in natural dye to make the repeated motifs. Woodland tribe baskets are collected by American folk art collectors more than Antque American Indian Art collectors. I have never known why that is, as all are beautiful.
