Note: The designs for the Apache baskets are rooted in prehistoric ceramic motifs, predominately made of willow as a base then highlighted with devil's clay and yucca. They were made for utilitarian purposes, such as storage and carrying. The above offered lot is woven with a star on the base with crosses in the petals. The body is woven with triangles of horses (a much revered animal) and figures, and geometric flower-heads, all evenly proportioned. 


Minor wear and scuffing on the base. With an inventory label on the base. Nice quality.Not withstanding this report or any discussion concerning condition of a lot, all lots are offered and sold "as is" in accordance with our conditions of sale.
