Antique Apache Tray
Antique Apache Tray. Apache Baskets are now the most valuable basket here among the Southwest (not including California tribes). Apaches were highly nomadic people before the turn of the century, there are hardly any remnants of apache arts left today. The people nevertheless mastered basketry as a form of art that cannot hardly be produced today. This basket has some unusual patterns portrayed on the inside; there are four diamond like shapes extending from the center, as well as several pictorial patterns (people and dogs).
Circa: Early 1900s
