Small circular coiled "trinket" basket. Wondered if this is native North American S.W. basket. Measures appx. 4.5 inches by 6.3 inches so I've decided to call it a trinket basket. The blue dye on the top has a bit of fade more vibrant on the bottom. Seems like it is a coiled basket but I wondered about the shape and what it was made for - maybe just a tourist item. I wondered if there was any way to determine better age and possible location of manufacture. Any information would be appreciated.
