    where did you get your basket dave it is a very nice one and how long have you had it , a friend of my past away a few years back and he was a collector arrowheads and other indian things and when they had a auction for his things ,i went and head one just like this and i bought it ,i was told by his wife they had got this back in the 1960's when they were on a trip in arizona and bought it off indian trading post she said he $150.00 back then so i don't know what they would bring now though i would hope at least 300.00 to 400.00 just my thoughts i might be way off i don't know but i would not sell mine for no less if i was selling and i am not so there you go ,very nice bowl

    Chris, just found out you are right. They are actually coping Native American Baskets in Pakistan/Kenya/Africa. Thanks. Dave

    Hi, I just purchased a basket, that looks very much like this one. How can I tell if it is authentic and by who, I would like to sell it.
    thanks, Jusducky

    This basket was made in Africa. Alot of baskets made there are confused with Native Americans basketry so do not feel bad. You can see them on the internet and they are called "Hausa Baskets".
