One (1) small Apache coiled willow rod and grass basket, and one (1) polychrome flat tray basket, weaver unknown. Baskets were an efficient tool for collecting and carrying food.

These baskets are in very nice condition, exhibiting intricate designs and beautiful artistic workmanship. Consistent sturdy construction noted throughout. No marring observed. Largest basket measures 9.5"W diameter x 2.25"H, smallest is 3.25"W diameter x 1.25"H.
