This basket was originally purchased from the Grace Nicholson collection in Pasadena, California. (Grace Nicholson, 1877-1948, a renowned collector and dealer, first opened her curio shop in Pasadena in 1902. She is well known for her patronage and documentation of the work of Elizabeth Hickox, the famous Karuk basket weaver. Baskets supplied by Nicholson are well represented in a number of public institutions.) Previous owner, Marion Burns, believes that the basket may have been woven by Aida Icho. (For information on this basket maker see: Latta, Frank, Handbook of Yokuts Indians, Bear State Books, Santa Cruz, California, 1977).
Diameter: 15 1/2 inches
