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. I give no permission for any other entity to use my photos or content in any way, shape or form. Thanks, Tlynnie1942 (Read more)

  5. Ho2cultcha, I only see this type of style basket every once in a while, and it is really hard to find one that is without damage. Those tiny 1/32 size splints are hard enough to weave through the ...
  6. Beautiful basket! It was probably made around the late 1800's to early 1910. And yes, the MicMac did make this style of basket. Also the Abenaki and Iroquois did too. This basket was made with spli...
  7. Okay, this is not Native American, I think this is from Mexico.
  8. OMG, I love this.
  9. Really nice, I think it is a kind of Fern. My grandmother loved plants and had them all over her house. All of the families would go to her house on Sundays after church to eat dinner and hang out. T...
  10. Okay, this one is probably California Mission too. You got yourself a beauty here, really nice!
  11. You are very welcome, bindysue.
  12. No trouble at all :)
  13. I do not think there is a way to message back and forth on here, talking about buying or selling items put on this website are a BIG no no here and I think CW bosses are not going to give people a ven...
  14. I have no idea what happened there LOL! I was going to say that it could also be Thomson tribe, they were in very close locations and used the same weaving styles.
  15. No problem, this is my favorite thing to do. I love Native American basketry and I love helping out others to tell them what they actually have. Especially when it turns out they have something very...
  16. The other baskets that I did not comment on, I am not sure of and I can't super size the pics to see the weave. I am pretty sure a couple are not Native American, there were plenty of copycats around...
  17. This one was also made by the Tohono O'odham tribe.
  18. This was made by a member of the Hopi Native American tribe. It looks to be a really nice one too :)
  19. This is a basket made by the Tohono O'odham Native American tribe.
  20. This basket was made by a member of the Seminole Native American tribe, and is probably from Florida. The colors used to stitch the grasses together are the colors used by the Seminole, as well as th...
  21. This basket was made by the Tarahumara natives in Mexico.
  22. PS I am extremely jealous of you right now....... LOL No really, I am.
  23. This is called a California Mission Basket, and this one looks to be in EXCELLENT CONDITION! Check on Ebay for the amounts that these types of baskets are going for, and then do some research on thi...
  24. This is from the Salish Native American tribe, from the Pacific Northwest. It cou
  25. 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...
  26. Very nice Skokomish basket! Thanks for putting it up :)
  27. Nice basket, love the colors.
  28. CanyonRoad is correct. This is a Hausa basket from Nigeria.

  31. I really like this one alot, thanks for putting it up :)
  32. WOW Nice find!
  33. Uh erm I meant 12 string, not 21.
  34. 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 ...
  35. For your first buy, you did really well. Just beautiful :)
  36. 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...
  37. You are very welcome, I am happy to help :)
  38. 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...
  39. 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...
  40. 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...
  41. 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...
  42. 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, ...
  43. 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...
  44. CanyonRoad is correct. This basket was made in Africa.
  45. 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,...
  46. 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...
  47. 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...
  48. You are very welcome, mssue64 :)
  49. Wow, really nice!
  50. 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 ...
