    Certainly the largest Native American basket I have ever seen. Woodlands or Eastern Tribe, circa 1900-1920. The decoration is known as "potato-stamp" as a potato or other easily carved object was created and dipped in natural dye to make the repeated motifs. Woodland tribe baskets are collected by American folk art collectors more than Antque American Indian Art collectors. I have never known why that is, as all are beautiful.

      Jim, I have a similar basket that is 30" tall with the lid. My grandma bought it from a Native American woman in the early 60's in Illinois and it was old then. I did inquire at the Indian Museum in Mt. Pleasant Michigan and they had one on display and told me that size was very rare and they were made for trade. Does anyone have an idea on the value of it?
