Anyone know anything about this oval shaped basket? Measures about 13 inches long by 6 inches deep.
VERY fine weaving, top fits perfectly. MAY have been purchased in AZ 20 years ago.

    Its not a Southwestern Indian piece, its Alaskan Inuit. Older one too. Too bad about the fading :[

    Thank you! Wonder how it made its way to AZ? Bet that's a story.....

    Hard to tell if its old or if its just been exposed to sunlight. The colors on the inside are very bright. Might not be TOO old actually. Look up "Inuit basket" or "Eskimo basket" on Google Images or eBay to see the current market values
