Another one of the larger baskets in the collection. This basket is about 14" tall and I know it was made in Alaska because it still has the tags on it. I am not sure what region in AK but I don't think it is too old. I used to live in AK and my dad purchased this basket there. Any information or comments about the basket are appreciated. Make sure to check out my other baskets. The estate was rather large and there are still a couple hundred more baskets I have yet to take pictures of. Thanks a bunch!

    Probably Yupik or Inuit. And if this was kept out of the light so the colors did not fade, it could have been made as early as 1940. Beauty!
