My mother recently gave me a Indian basket that belonged to my great, great, great, great grandmother and I am interested in learning more about it. Can you please contact me so that I could send you a picture of it. The only picture I have seen similar to it is a Chumash basket.Thank you for your time.
You know, Tracy, I don’t know that much about the baskets myself! I try to learn a little bit as I go to the museums. I don’t know where you live, but the best example I’ve seen of Chumash basketry is the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. If you can’t visit in person, give the museum a call. Someone there would work with you via a photo to identify it. Another wonderful place to learn more is the Autry Museum here in SoCal. They also have people who will work with you. I would love to help…but I don’t know any more than you do! If it is that old, it is likely to be quite valuable. I’d get it appraised, even if you don’t want to part with it!
thank you so much for your device. I really appreciate it. Have a great day.
You’re welcome, Tracy!
