This basket is about 3.5" tall and it is very tightly woven. I am not sure where it is from or what it was used for. I seeing if the online community could help me out with some more info about this basket. It looks old and it looks like it was very hard to make.

    This is probably Tsimshian, due to it being made of Red Cedar. It is a beauty! I love the decoration on it, you are very lucky to have so many wonderful baskets. Collectors dream of baskets like this!
