Native American Art - - NATIVE BASKETRY -

This Western Apache Olla bas­ket dates to the turn of the 20th cen­tury, circa 1890 to 1910. Mea­sur­ing 14¼ inches in height and 14½ inches in di­am­e­ter, it is con­structed with a 3-rod wil­low foun­da­tion and has wil­low and devil’s claw stitch­ing. Hor­i­zon­tal bands of rec­tan­gu­lar blocks are ar­ranged in a strik­ing checker­board de­sign. The rim and black de­signs were ex­e­cuted in devil’s claw. The bas­ket’s con­di­tion is re­mark­able, par­tic­u­larly for a piece of its age.
