    Description

    Yokuts Coiled Pictorial Basket
    Circa 1920
    Height 7 1/2 in. Diameter 15 1/2 in.

    This basket is decorated with human figures and geometric forms including seven women, seven small crosses, seven complex large crosses, seven solid black rectangular forms, and seven stepped triangles with open bases. An accompanying letter states the 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.) In the same letter, Marion Burns, a previous owner, states 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).

    Provenance
    Merrill Domas, Old Chatham, New York.



    Estimate: $6,000 - $9,000.
