Offered is a beautiful antique Paiute Washoe Native American Basket with a patriotic sparkling glass seed beads in red, white, blue and gold. It is an older basket and the actual basket has darkened with a lovely patina. The design is stunning and overall the basket is in good antique condition. It measures 2 3/4″ by 1 3/4″. It displays beautifully but has a few small areas of beadloss (on rim and center of basket on one side–the center beads appear to have been glued to stop any additional loss). A discolored blue spot inside basket. Most of the items we sell come from our personal collection gathered over the years from our travels, from Native powwows and craft stores, antique shops, auctions and estate sales. Now that our kids are in college and beyond, we are letting some items go so others can enjoy them. Then I’ll send you a combined invoice. Sorry for the expense, but I’ve had items lost overseas when mailing first class and don’t want to take the risk of losing items. I pack carefully and try to reuse materials to save on environmental impact. I often double-box items with smaller gift boxes collected from various thrift stores. I reuse all that I receive and hope you will make use of the ones that come in your packages.
