The heart and soul tI have collected Native American basketry for many years now. I love everything about them, the differences in the weaves from tribe to tribe. The heart and soul that the artist puts into each and every basket they make, I am constantly amazed at how they are able to do what they do. I hope that others can look at my pictures and see what I see in them. Enjoy the pics :) I only give permission to Collector's Weekly to use my photos per the terms agreement.

  1. You can also go to Ebay and put in a search for "Hausa Basket". There you will see many baskets that look just like yours. There may be other shapes, but the colors are the same and most of them als...
  2. Very nice Skokomish basket! Thanks for putting it up :)
  3. Nice basket, love the colors.
  4. CanyonRoad is correct. This is a Hausa basket from Nigeria.

  8. WOW Nice find!
  9. Uh erm I meant 12 string, not 21.
  10. You know, Michael Nesmith still plays at the age of 72, and not only did Gretch customize his 6 string electric into a 12 string for him but they also fashioned him another electric 21 string guitar ...
  11. For your first buy, you did really well. Just beautiful :)
  12. Blunderbuss2 said, "I keep thinking, "I've never seen that colour on Indian work". Hey, you experts. Is this a common colour for Indian work? Blue always seemed to be prominent in my experience." I...
  13. You are very welcome, I am happy to help :)
  14. Hello, This is called a "Puzzle bag", and they were made by members of the Iroquois Native American tribes. They are called puzzle bags because of the way the split deerskin thongs were extended t...
  15. Thank you to all the people that "love" this basket. I would welcome any comments about whether this basket is truly Native American made or if it was maybe Shaker. What do you think, do you thin...
  16. Thanks for the comments :) And yes ho2cultcha, it does still smell of Sweetgrass and I love it too. And when I get a "new addition" to my collection I always show them to my mother. The first thi...
  17. CanyonRoad is right, this basket is Pitt River. I have seen many of them with the rim having a bigger "rolled" weave at the top and they have the wire running around the basket under the weave. The...
  18. Thanks for your comment:) I love Native American basketry, and I have alot of them. I live in a decent sized apartment and I have them all over the place. I love the artistry that goes into them, ...
  19. Thank you! My area of expertise is not beaded anything, I got this on Ebay about 6-7 years ago and it was listed as Native American. I bought it because it was different and it has bugged me eve...
  20. CanyonRoad is correct. This basket was made in Africa.
  21. Zowie, it's cool really. I am sorry if you think I was upset, I am really not. It is provenance that gives extra value to a item. Without it, you got nothing. Most old baskets have no provenance,...
  22. Zowie, unless you have provenance that proves who made a basket , how can say? I can only say the style of the thimble basket is indicative of Theresa Camilla Lyon Sockalexis, that is it even though...
  23. Ho2cultcha, I know these kinds of very small baskets were made to hold items used in sewing. I have a sewing basket up on this site, from 3 years ago and it has these kinds of tiny baskets attached i...
  24. You are very welcome, mssue64 :)
  25. Wow, really nice!
  26. This is Native American, this basket is called a Trivet. It was made by a member of the Inuit Tribe of Alaska. They used dyed sea grass to wrap around other kinds of grass to make these baskets. I ...
  27. Thank you for your comment, racer4four :)
  28. Thanks ho2culcha :) Yes, it could be Micmac. I maybe should say Wabanaki, as there are many tribes in and around Maine and up into Canada that use similar styles in their weaving.
  29. Yes, I think so too Vetraio50. I wish I would have asked my friend who the artist was, it is too late now as he passed away very recently. He was a great person who told me stories of his life in H...
  30. The Akron Civic Theatre is an indoor place. It was restored to it's original glory and looks amazing. My mom used to go there when she was little to see movies. You could see 4 at a time and then the...
  31. What a treat, my mom and I had a great time! But he was only able to play for an hour and a half, he was starting a new tune and the venue made him stop. He was not happy, they talked for about five m...
