Browse our extensive collection of investment-quality antique baskets dating circa 1870-1930

The tribal peoples of the Great Basin region (around and including the Western Nevada/Eastern California desert region) produced some of the worlds most intricate and finely woven three-rod foundation baskets. Surviving baskets generally were woven from the beginnings of the Early Collector period (late 19th century) to the Great Depression of 1930 which marked the end of traditional fine basket weaving for most tribal cultures.

  Chemehuevi Baskets (all dating circa 1870-1930) Coiled willow and martynia on three rod foundation. Ollas (jar form), bowls, trays, etc. More rare and more conservative in design and form than Apache, the Chemehuevi weavers of the Great Basin region lived in the desert at the California/Nevada border. Chemehuevi baskets are a favorite of long-time collectors.

Panamint Baskets (all dating circa 1880-1930) Coiled willow and black martynia ("devilsclaw") seedpod on three rod foundation, some polychrome examples with red yucca root. Panamint basketry examples include some of the most refined and sophisticated examples in all of basketry weaving.  Death Valley, California.

 Important Datsolale (Louisa Keyser) Degikup- (SOLD)Washo Baskets (all dating circa 1880-1930) Coiled willow, black bracken fern, and sometimes brick-colored redbud on a three rod foundation. Washo baskets, including the near spherical degikup form--created especially for wealthy collectors in the 1900-1920 era, are perhaps the collecting world's most desired baskets. Washo weaver Louisa Keyser (Dat-So-La-Lee, b.1850(?)-d.1925) is widely recognized as the most famous basket weaver in the world. Examples of her baskets and other famous weavers are often available through our gallery. Please contact us for more information or to be put on a notification list.
