This coiled basket is an early version of an innovative bicolor style whose creation was stimulated by the growing market for California Native-made baskets. The diagonal brown and red designs accentuate the basket’s rounded walls. The piece’s pristine condition indicates that it was made for sale at a time of extreme hardship for Native people in California, when women wove and sold baskets to collectors to help support their families.
