Apache Style Bottle Basket

SOLD This twined Bottle Basket Apache Style resembles those the Native Americans of the Great Plains made out of necessity. Those crafters demonstrated great skill in weaving tight cylindrical baskets to carry and store water. Sometimes they lined the inside of the basket with pitch to ensure that they would be water tight.
We acquired this basketry bottle in a collection. It looks like the Basket maker covered it with red ochre. On the outside you will see dried resin that has seeped through the spaces in the fiber. The handles on this bottle are intact and it will stand on its own.
The pitch lining has disintegrated. Structurally, this basketry bottle remains in very good condition. Add it to your collection and admire the workmanship!  Structurally this Bottle Basket Apache Style remains intact.  It stands  8.5 inches tall. The widest middle section measures about 24 inches in circumference. The top opening measures about 1.25 inches  in diameter.  One of a Kind!
