Antique Louisiana Native American basket, Houma Indians, ca. 1st qtr 20thC, a lidded knob top basket, the lid is attached with a small amount of hand twisted cypress tree bark, hand woven palmetto, the technique is called loop coiling, or half hitch weaving, and is unique to the Houma, undecorated, but the basket has the lovely golden hue that only comes with age, there is a bit of fabric around the rim and top, which may indicate that it once had a cloth lining, palmetto makes for a strong basket, but there is a bit of weakness to the bottom, so i recommend collecting this basket, but not using it, some soiling, there may be some missing weavers, it is misshapen, the approximate size is 8 inches x 5 inches, #11703, shipping is extra
