I am curious about this what appears to be a native North American Southwestern shallow basket. I've heard that this type of basket is being reproduced in Pakistan and wondered if anyone knew of a way to determine or authentic a real one verus a modern reproduction. This one is appx. 14.2 inches round and very nicely made. The back/bottom construction is not as fine as the front. It is a coiled basket. If it is in fact from the American S.W. I wondered in what area it was made and rough idea of date of construction. Any help would be very much appreciated.
