    I am thinking this basket is native American perhaps from the southwest. Very nicely crafted. Measures appx. 6.5 top to bottom and the circumference is 24.5 inches. Tight weave. Inside bottom has what looks like a cigarette burn. Any information or identification would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

      This basket was made by a member of the Tohono O'odham Native American Tribe. They reside in the Southwest, Central Arizona, and othe places in California. They make these baskets using White Yucca and Beargrass for the design stitching. The patina shows as a cream coloring with a brown or black design, like yours does. You can look up Tohono O'odham to get more info about the people and their artistry with basket making :)

      Beautiful basket in great condition! Tohono O'odham were known as the Papago for a long time, but Tohono O'odham is a much more appropriate name [in their own language].
