I came across this great lidded basket at a local rummage sale here in Arizona. The coil weave looks a little different than other coiled Native baskets with the extra reinforced wrap around step done on this basket as you can see in the close-up. Someone had stained the outside as you can see the lighter original color inside. It looks like yucca and bear grass possibly. It measures approximately 15" tall by 15" wide. If anyone has any information I would really appreciate it. I have tried researching it but have not found an exact. I would love to know the origin!
