This basket is woven of very long pine needles found in the south central portion of the United States. Although the artist is not known, this person was a master weaver. The proportions of the tall urn like basket are very tightly woven in order to securely contain whatever was placed into the basket. The simple yet beautiful design around the rim and upper neck of the basket serves to enhance its beauty.

Condition: Excellent – original condition
Provenance: Acquired from a private collection from a gentleman in Texas who purchased this basket in Oklahoma
