It's 10 inches tall and about 10 inches wide. It's been in my family for years but not sure where it came from. I would love to know more about it. If anyone knows more about it please let me know. Thanks :)

    This is a basket made by the Tohono O'odham Native American tribe. The weave is done with a coil of Bear Grass, sewn with the Yucca plant, and the black design is made with a mash from the seed pods of the Devils Claw plant. It looks like you have a nice example here, although there is some damage around the rim. The basket has also gained a deeper color, which could be from age or dirt (alot of old baskets have alot of dust or dirt down in the weave) but if it is dust or dirt you can use a duster to get some off.
