When I first started placing items on this site, I put multiple pics up on the same page and only showed one pic of each basket. I wanted to do some over so I could add more detailed pictures of them. Hope nobody minds.

Here is another Makah basket I have, this one is about 4 1/2 inches in diameter and about 3 inches high. The colors on this one are great and there is no damage at all to it. Alot of these have whales or ducks or people in boats, but I like the ones with just designs on them as they are usually older. This one was probably made between 1890 and 1910. Made of Cedar, Cattail leaves and Sea grass.

    Thanks, Bellin68 :)
    I think it is a keeper too, I never sell them. I just collect....my apartment is getting full to overflowing and I am running out of places to put things. I keep telling myself that I need to stop getting more baskets but then I see another one I "just have to have"...lol
