Featured in this lot is this Tohono O'odham Indian hand woven beargrass basket collection, circa mid 1900's. The collection features a serving basket and a smaller personal woven platter. They are both constructed from beargrass and feature darker naturally dyed strands of beargrass fashioned into geometric patterns.

The federally recognized tribe is known as the Tohono O'odham Nation in the United States. The condition of this basket collection is good, with no obvious signs of damage. This piece measures 7 3/4" in diameter by 4" tall.
