I acquired this basket in England about fifteen years ago. It measures 18 3/4" across and is about 2 3/4" high. It is dusty and there is a little rim damage (see photos). I found it along with a basket (also listed in my shop) that I believe is of South American origin. So, I cannot say for sure where this one came from----possibly African, possibly South American...more than likely it is NOT of native American origin.....a collector emailed me and said that this very closely resembles baskets he purchased in Nigeria, in West Africa, so that might well be our answer. Regardless of origin, the basket is quite decorative and has some age.
