Native American Basket

I never get rid of my Native American collectibles.  I have beaded moccasins, various beaded bags, pottery, jewelry and baskets.  This basket is a pre-1950's Choctaw basket.  The design is Jacob's Ladder.  Though the dyes have faded somewhat, at one time they were red, gold and blue.  


  1. Beautiful basket and the photo is lovely. One of my favorite stores as a child was the tiny Native American store that used to be in Ojai. I could spend ages in there looking at the jewelry, dolls, moccasins ... and speaking of moccasins ... I want to see! Please post! :)

  2. Yes, I agree. Let's see more of the treasures! And thanks for coming by. Must catch up!

    It was a tough decision that more beautiful house I like was in Normandie. (smile)
