    Seeking information about this basket. From an estate sale in Illinois around 1985. Have always wondered where it originated.

      It's not Native American, it's a typical Mexican basket from the Toluca Valley region of central Mexico. They usually feature images of horses or Native Americans because they were popular souvenir items, sold for years, both in Mexico and in the Southwest U.S. This one appears from the photos, to date circa 1960s/1980s.

      If you would like to confirm this identification, the University of Washington's Burke Museum's online database shows several Toluca Valley baskets from their collection.
