Basket Antique Pima Tray 13.5 inch
Basket Antique Pima Tray 13.5 inchThis large Antique Pima Tray will be the centerpiece of your collection! This Basket Tray comes from the early 20th Century. It features a geometric design.
The Pima Indians live in Arizona. They create Baskets with coiled bundles of grass or fibers. They weave these closely together with willow shoots (natural "white") and devil's claw (black) fibers. Pima Indians generally start their Baskets with a black center.
The Basket measures 13.5" in diameter at the top. The slight bottom measures approximately 4.5" in diameter. The Basket is very shallow and stands just 1.5" high. It remains in very good condition with no breaks in the fibers, but you will see a dark burn mark descending from the edge.
One of a Kind!
