Recently picked up this older woven basket at a local estate sale here in Seattle. Living up here in the Pacific Northwest it is sometime more common to find authentic vintage Native American baskets, and other culturally related items, so I grab pieces if the price is right even if I don't know if they are authentic or not. This basket is one of those pieces.

I have not seen an Indian basket woven quite like this, so I was hoping there might be some experienced collectors or knowledgeable people out there who can share what they know from looking at this piece. Thank you all for your time in reading this!

This basket measures roughly 12" tall and 12" in diameter

    No Native American tribe uses this combination of material and weaving technique. I would say it is most likely from India, where this technique of creating a design pattern by stitching over several rows of coils, is common.

    Thanks CanyonRoad! I thought I had thanked you a long time ago when you originally shared your thoughts, but it looks like my post never went through.... I appreciate your insight!
