This Pima basket at left is circa 1920-1940s. Dealers and collectors always say these are eagles, but I wonder if in fact some are meant to be turkeys...an important food source in the mountains. And once woven into warm, rainproof cloaks. Either way, it measures 10.75 inches across. 5 coils per inch. SOLD. The Apache basket at right is from the early 1900s. 10.5 inches across and 2.5 inches deep. 6 coils per inch. $1475

 

The basket at left, with the idiosyncratic design motifs in with the sivaluk or whirlwind motif is Pima, woven about 70 to 90 years ago. 16 inches across and about 5.5 inches deep. 5 coils per inch and in excellent condition. The Apache basket at right dates to around 1910-1930s. Just under 11 by 2.5 inches. 4 coils per inch.
