    Hello,
    I am trying to figure out if this woven goblet is of any significance to the Native American history. I think it was a souvenir but I cannot find out which of the part of USA it came from. Is it just another woven item or is it important. My friends keep on asking me about it and I cannot provide any information.
    Please help.
    Thank you

      Sorry, but it isn't Native American. Native American basketry is my specialty, so I can't tell you exactly where this is from...only that it isn't from any part of the USA.

      This way of attaching lids is common in Mexico and South America. The distinctive triangular decoration, where stitches extend over several coils, isn't used by any Native American tribe, but is common on African baskets. The material used is palm fiber. Maybe this can help you identify the source.

      It's main value is as a decorative souvenir, as you probably suspected.

      CanyonRoad - Thank you very much for your time. I appreciate it. Since you know about the woven baskets will you please take a look at the basket that I had posted and maybe you will have idea about its age? Solid made and looks old but I had no clue when. It is not a Naive American but I could use any information.
      Thank you
